Abstract: The isolation of single cells is an essential pre-requisite for many research projects in pathology, oncology or forensics.
The MMI CellEctor is designed to facilitate selective isolation of single cells in suspensions.
This study demonstrates the development of the novel Shake Mode feature which now enables the effi cient but gentle uptake of living adherent cells. Thus, cells can be used for many kinds of downstream analysis as well as for further cultivation.
As an application example, we show single-cell mRNA profi ling using CTCs from liquid biopsies.
