Analyse and sort hiPS clusters automatically

REPROGRAMMING somatic cells into human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPS) clusters brings with it the tantalising potential to create disease-specific and patient-specific human cell products.

This in turn creates a need to produce a high number of hiPS cell lines, in order to standardise protocols and to produce fully characterised cells.

Union Biometrica says its new Copas Plus particle flow cytometers allow the analysis and sorting of intact hiPS cell clusters from complex mixtures, with sorting based on size, optical density, and fluorescence.

This sorting process does not affect cell morphology or viability, says the company, compared to manually sorted cell clusters.
