Biopharma and FACS core facilities

On-chip Sort, The world’s first cell sorter using adisposable microfluidic chip, designed for BioPharma andFACS Core Facilities

On-chip Sort the microfluidic chip cell sorter

The On-chip Sort is the world's first cell sorter using a disposable microfluidic chip. Utilizing the advanced microfluidic technology and micro-molding technology, we have developed the world’s first microfluidic chip-based sorter. Cell sorting has never been easier than with our disposable microfluidic chip- based system. The product is designed to fit the demands of BioPharma and FACS Core facilities.

Advantages of On-chip Sort

Damage & Maintenance-free

From cell damage to contamination, On-chip cell sorter solves the problems of conventional cell sorters altogether.
Utilizing the most advanced microfluidic technology and micro-molding technology, we have developed a unique “microfluidic chip-based sorting” for the first time in the world. Cell sorting has never been easier with the exchangeable chip with in-built fluidic system. On-chip innovation beyond a cell sorter, that is what we are here to offer.

Conventional Sorter On-chip Sort
Cell Damage Sorter-induced cellular stress Damage-free
Contamination Possibility of cross- contamination Sterile and contamination-free
Instrument Size Commonly large Small enough to fit inside a biosafety cabinet
Cell Size Typically < 40μm As large as 140μm
Sheath Fluid Particular sheath fluid required Choose from a variety of media

Jet-in-air or Cuvette hybrid cell sorters have multiple processes that triggers sorter-induced cellular stress (SICS). On-chip Sort allows for much gentler sorting of cells compared to conventional sorters by the use of microfluidic chip.
