Add New Depth to Cell Studies with the Efficiency, Ease, and Versatility of Celselect Slides™

The complexity of life is rooted in cells. From cell structure, to genetic variability, gene expression, and the formation of complex tissues and organs, all of biology is dependent upon this basic unit. The selection, capture, and study of cells, particularly rare cells, treated cells, or cells within a mixed cell population, is essential for providing insight into diverse areas such as the mechanisms of cancer and metastasis, disease, symbiosis, and biological diversity.

The Genesis Cell Isolation System with Celselect slides technology achieves fast, efficient selection and capture of viable individual cells 8-30 µm in size from liquid biopsy, cell culture, and other liquid sample types using gentle microfluidics and size-based, cell selection.

How Could Your Cell Research Benefit with Celselect Slides Technology?

Examine how the Genesis System with Celselect Slides™ can be used for efficient capture, recovery, and analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from liquid biopsy samples. Imagine what you can do with Celselect technology with your cells!

  • discover

    advanced cell capture, recovery, and labeling or staining in an integrated workflow with the Genesis System and Celselect Slides™

  • Application: Circulating tumor cell (CTC) capture, enumeration and immunolabeling.

Celselect Workflow

Application: liquid biopsy CTC capture
liquid biopsy samples over 56,000 individual micro chambers
individual CTCs with precise, non-biased, gentle size selection that preserves native biology
captured CTCs for culture or downstream analysis
CTCs using a wide range of downstream technologies including NGS, dPCR, qPCR, flow cytometry, FISH and more
or immunolabel
to enumerate CTCs or characterize surface proteins on-slide using fluorescent antibodies
