AUTOMATED YEAST DISSECTION CHIP

FEATURES 

  • Capable of trapping up to 8,000 individual yeast cells
  • Tracks roughly 500 yeast cells’ life span for 16 different strains in 3-4 days of culturing
  • Daughter cells are automatically separated to reduce labor and time cost


SPECIFICATIONS  

  • Material: Silicone-based organic polymer
  • Substrate: #1 Glass coverslip or glass slide 
  • Number of single-cell traps: Total 8,320 (520 x 16 chambers)
  • Number of inlets: 4 media inlets, 16 individual inlets
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 75 x 25 x 4 mm


OPERATION AND ANALYSIS   

  • Continuous imaging of budding yeasts throughout their entire lifespan
  • Compatible with high resolution fluorescent imaging microscopes for single-cell tracking
