New System to Automate Tissue Preparation for Single-Cell Study

A new system is automating tissue preparation for single cells or nuclei analysis.

FREMONT, CA: A manufacturer of automated tissue sample preparation systems, S2 Genomics, has launched Singulator™ 100 System. The new system automates the processing of solid tissue samples into suspensions of single cells or nuclei with high yields and from small samples for a wide range of single-cell biology and genomic analyses. Automated tissue preparation workflows assure excellent single-cell data, expediting single-cell research for genomics, cell biology, and other applications. Singulator 100 automates and standardizes the dissociation method of solid tissues. It makes it simple for researchers to reproducibly prepare suspensions of high-quality, highly viable cells or nuclei with minimal variability. 

Recent methods of cell isolation are often manual or usually necessitate a series of manual interventions, creating a significant workflow bottleneck and experimental inconsistencies for single-cell researchers. The Singulator 100 overcomes such difficulties by rapidly producing consistent, reproducible cell or nuclei suspensions from solid tissue samples without user interventions, reducing hours of hands-on processing to minutes. S2 Genomics provides a selection of automated pre-set protocols and pre-formulated reagents for cell isolations from an expanding set of rat and human tissues and tumors – and mammalian, insects, and plant nuclei isolations. Singulator 100 mitigates hours of challenging manual steps to minutes.
