Semi-Permeable
Capsules

Accelerate your multi-step molecular analysis with Semi-Permeable Capsules

Semi-permeable capsules (SPCs) are a breakthrough technology transforming microfluidics-based multi-step workflows. SPCs are composed of an aqueous core that is surrounded by a hydrogel shell. The shell functions like a size-selective membrane, enabling the free exchange of small reaction components while maintaining compartmentalization of single cells or large biomolecules. Made from a biocompatible polymer, SPCs can be frozen, thawed, centrifuged, and used with many harsh chemical solutions. Downstream reactions can be performed in a bulk-like manner on millions of SPCs in parallel for high-throughput molecular analysis.
