In order to better understand cellular processes and behavior, a controlled way of studying high numbers of single cells and their clone formation is greatly needed. Numerous ways of ordering single cells into arrays have previously been described, but platforms in which each cell/clone can be addressed to an exact position in the microplate, cultivated for weeks and treated separately in a high‐throughput manner have until now been missing. Here, a novel microplate developed for high…

Development of High-Throughput Platforms for Single-Cell Analysis
Many important areas of research regarding human health, such as immunology and cancer biology, deal with highly heterogeneous populations of cells where the contributions of individual players
Single-cell culture in microwells.
TLDR
This chapter describes a microwell plate with 672 wells in a standard array/slide format, applied for single-cell culture and analysis, compatible with most standard instrumentation to facilitate easy handling and enable use of the plate for single -cell analysis in most laboratory settings.
Nano-Volume Well Array Chip for Large-Scale Propagation and High- Resolution Analysis of Individual Cancer Stem Cells
Cellular heterogeneity represents an increasingly appreciated aspect for research in life science. To address this issue, we have developed a nano-volume well array chip that allows larger-scale
Real-time quantification of protein expression and translocation at individual cell resolution using imaging-dish-based live cell array
TLDR
Both the new methodology and the device facilitate research of the translocation process at individual cell resolution within large populations and thus, can potentially be used in high-throughput fashion.
A microwell array device with integrated microfluidic components for enhanced single‐cell analysis
TLDR
A microwell system designed (using flow simulations) for single‐cell analysis with integrated microfluidic components (microchannels, magnetically driven micropumps and reservoirs) for supplying the cell culture wells with reagents, or rinsing, thus facilitating controlled, directed liquid handling.
PCR amplification and genetic analysis in a microwell cell culturing chip.
TLDR
The presented method of single-cell culture and DNA amplification offers a potentially powerful alternative to single- cell PCR, with advantageous robustness and sensitivity, and is anticipated that the technique could be used in mutation frequency screening, in hundreds of samples simultaneously.
High throughput screening to investigate the interaction of stem cells with their extracellular microenvironment
TLDR
Methods and technologies that have aided in the development of high throughput screening assays for stem cell research, including enabling technologies such as the well-established multiwell/microwell plates and robotic spotting, and emerging technologies like microfluidics, micro-contact printing and lithography are discussed.
Miniaturization of biological assays -- overview on microwell devices for single-cell analyses.

A scalable experimental platform that combines microfluidic addressability with quantitative live cell imaging of fluorescent protein transcriptional reporters to achieve real-time characterization of gene expression programs in living cells is reported.
Single-cell microarray for analyzing cellular response.
TLDR
A single-cell microarray system to analyze cellular response of individual cells such as lymphocytes using microchamber array chips that is suitable for high-throughput analysis of intracellular Ca2+ response at the single- cell level and is applicable to screen antigen-specific lymphocytes for making specific monoclonal antibody.
Defining the actual sensitivity and specificity of the neurosphere assay in stem cell biology
TLDR
It is observed that neurospheres are highly motile structures prone to fuse even under ostensibly 'clonal' culture conditions, which has implications for the use of 'cytospheres' as an assay in other organ systems and with other cell types, both normal and neoplastic.
Derivation of three clones from human embryonic stem cell lines by FACS sorting and their characterization.
TLDR
The ability to produce clones from a parent hESC line rapidly by FACS sorting will help provide a homogeneous population of cells for achieving uniformed lineage specifications for future transplantation therapies and biomedical research.
A practical guide to microfluidic perfusion culture of adherent mammalian cells.
TLDR
The integrative and systematic treatment of the microfluidic system design and fabrication, cell culture, and micro-assays provides novices with an effective starting point to build and operate a robust microfludic perfusion culture system for various applications.
On-chip culture system for observation of isolated individual cells.
TLDR
The differential analysis method for single cells using an on-chip microculture system is developed, which found that the length of isolated Escherichia coli increased at 0.06 microm min(-1) between cell divisions regardless of the chamber volume, and that the cell concentration reached 10(12) cells ml (-1) under contamination free conditions.
Microtechnologies and nanotechnologies for single-cell analysis.
TLDR
A novel, so-called laboratory-in-a-cell concept has been described, where advantage is taken of micro- and nanotechnological tools to enable precise control of the biochemical cellular environment; these tools also offer the possibility to analyse the composition of single cells.
Survival of irradiated glia and glioma cells studied with a new cloning technique.
TLDR
A method allowing cloning of monolayer cultured cells with a low plating efficiency was developed and it was found that easily-cloned hamster cells for comparison found that the survival curves were similar to the curves obtained with conventional cloning.
A novel miniature cell retainer for correlative high-content analysis of individual untethered non-adherent cells.
TLDR
The present Cell Retainer (CR) concept enables high-content correlative multi-parametric measurements of the same living individual non-adherent cells within a population, so that despite extensive long-term bio-manipulations, the cells preserve their identity without tethering.
