The handling of single cells is of great importance in applications such as cell line development or single-cell analysis, e.g., for cancer research or for emerging diagnostic methods. This review provides an overview of technologies that are currently used or in development to isolate single cells for subsequent single-cell analysis. Data from a dedicated(More)
Within the past years, single-cell analysis has developed into a key topic in cell biology to study cellular functions that are not accessible by investigation of larger cell populations. Engineering approaches aiming to access single cells to extract information about their physiology, phenotype, and genotype at the single-cell level are going manifold(More)
Single-cell analysis has developed into a key topic in cell biology with future applications in personalized medicine, tumor identification as well as tumor discovery (Editorial, 2013). Here we employ inkjet-like printing to isolate individual living single human B cells (Raji cell line) and load them directly into standard PCR tubes. Single cells are(More)
Label-free isolation of single cells is essential for the growing field of single-cell analysis. Here, we present a device which prints single living cells encapsulated in free-flying picoliter droplets. It combines inkjet printing and impedance flow cytometry. Droplet volume can be controlled in the range of 500 pl-800 pl by piezo actuator displacement.(More)
In this report, we present a new method for generating a high-density (2D) droplet array using double-layered polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) templates containing honeycomb microwells. Without external flow control, a dropleton-template (DOT) was created by utilizing capillary forces associated with the interfacial tension between the aqueous and oil phases.(More)
The CellJet microfluidic dispenser chip prints single living cells encapsulated in free-flying droplets. Two sets of parallel facing electrodes in a 50 x 55 μm channel are applied to measure the presence and velocity of a single cell in real-time. Typically a 500 pl droplet is printed on demand, when a cell is at the nozzle. Feeding 20 μm polystyrene beads,(More)
Recent years have witnessed a strong trend towards analysis of single-cells. To access and handle single-cells, many new tools are needed and have partly been developed. Here, we present an improved version of a single-cell printer which is able to deliver individual single cells and beads encapsulated in free-flying picoliter droplets at a single-bead(More)
