Automated analysis and sorting of human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPS) clusters using large particle flow cytometry

April 30, 2012

 

 . . . (continued) . . .

Physical properties like size, optical density and fluorescence can be traced back for every dispensed cluster. When combined with a fluorescence microscope, correlation between the profile and the micrograph can be made for each individual cluster. An example of this type of analysis showed that cluster clonality is maintained. Clusters carrying either a green or red fluorescent tag were mixed and incubated, allowing time for rearrangement or migration of the cells between clusters. However, analysis of these clusters indicated that clonality was preserved during the sorting process and clusters remained either all green or all red.
 
About Union Biometrica, Inc.

Union Biometrica designs and markets flow cytometers for objects that are too large / too fragile for traditional cytometers and offer an alternative to manual sorting (under a microscope). These systems sort and dispense objects based on size and fluorescent parameters. Automating this process offers increased speed, sensitivity, quantification, and repeatability of experiments.  For more details please visit:
