Cellenion Announces Opening of BICO’s First Single Cell Analysis Centre of Excellence
Cellenion will provide a range of comprehensive single cell analyses and handling services from its new state-of-the-art laboratories in Lyon.
Cellenion, a BICO company, announced today the opening of the BICO group’s first Single Cell Analysis Centre of Excellence at its facilities in Lyon. This state-of-the-art centre will offer a range of services (cellenSERVICES) to companies and academic groups seeking complete solutions for their single cell projects from tissue dissociation to single cell isolation, library preparation, sequencing and subsequent bioinformatic analyses.
Cellenion has developed cellenONE®, a unique single cell isolation and nanoliter dispensing technology allowing high throughput image-based dispensing of individual cells from cell suspensions and precision dispensing of reagents to automate and miniaturize sample preparation prior to single cells analyses. By opening this service, Cellenion will offer its unique technology platform and strong expertise in the field of single cell isolation and sample preparation to a much wider public.
Dr. Guilhem Tourniaire, Managing Director of Cellenion, said, “We believe that by offering access to our technology through a panel of dedicated services, we will be able to answer a growing demand in the Biopharma and cosmetic industries for reliable and complete solutions in single cell analyses.”
Dr. Holger Eickhoff, CEO of Cellenion, said “by combining a very strong single cell expertise with our unique cellenONE® technology from our facilities in France, we aim to capture new customers seeking timely and comprehensive analyses of their clinical or research samples while using data storage exclusively located in Europe to ensure the highest security around the data generated.”
Initially focussing on single cell transcriptomic analyses using cellenONE®, Cellenion plans to diversify its offering to other areas of expertise such as automated cloning for cell line development and sorting and isolation of 3D cellular aggregates (spheroid and organoids) using its recently launched, spheroONE.
