Precision refers to the proportion single-cell obtained after isolation.
Viability refers to the proportion of cells viable after isolation.
Recovery refers to the number of single-cells isolated over the total number of cells present in a sample. High recovery is particularly important when working with rare cells or samples containing only few cells.
Throughput refers to the speed of isolation of each single-cell.
