Droplet microfluidics technology is based on reaction compartmentalization into aqueous droplets with picoliter to nanoliter volumes. These droplets are capable of isolating single cells or molecules for further analysis. Thousands of droplets can be generated in a single second, enabling the high-throughput analysis of biological samples. Droplet microfluidics technology is rapidly being adopted in the biological, biomedical, and biotechnical sciences and is accelerating research at the ultimate single-cell and single-molecule resolution.
Droplets can be counted and sorted based on their size, shape, or contents using advanced imaging. Monitor and analyze droplets in real-time by detecting the fluorescence of labeled target molecules and cells. This approach enables detection of rare cells and molecules not normally seen in traditional bulk analysis.
Labeling individual droplets with unique oligonucleotides enables high-throughput analysis of large populations of cells or molecules. This approach allows for the simultaneous analysis of tens of thousands of droplets in a single experiment, providing a comprehensive picture of biological processes or molecular interactions.
Develop novel assays and gain new insights into your biological system with droplet microfluidics. Droplet generation, manipulation and analysis can be optimized in custom workflows to increase efficiency and sensitivity while minimizing the cost and time required for experiments.
