Recent progress in biotechnology and nano-technology has enabled single cell sorting. To analyze these single cell characteristics, it is necessary to isolate a single cell from the original population to eliminate influences of other cells.
To sort a single cell with high speed, high accuracy and high viability, the researchers developed a single cell sorting device by utilizing on-chip pump at ultra-high-speed.
Nagoya University researchers have successfully developed a new system to distinguish various biomolecules including polystyrene nanoparticles (volume: 4 aL), bacteria, cancer cells, and DNA molecules from mixed samples by utilizing a long microscale microfluidic channel structure.
