Miniaturized single cell omics sample preparation

The cellenCHIP is a dedicated cellenONE® consumable that enables miniaturized single cell omics sample preparation.

  • cellenCHIP 384 has a microscope slide footprint and is composed of 384 wells made from optically clear low bind polypropylene (PP) with 20 to 400 nL working volumes.
  • Their proprietary design allows complete liquid recovery and easy sample pooling into cellenFUNNEL by simple centrifugation.
  • The deck of the cellenONE® can accomodate up to 8 cellenCHIPs, representing a total of 3072 wells.

Multiple isothermal applications have been successfully demonstrated within the wells of the cellenCHIP. Supplied as a set together with the cellenFUNNEL, these allow for high recovery and pooling of solutions contained in every well of the cellenCHIP by a simple centrifugation step.

Combined with a dedicated processing set, the cellenONE® can accomodate up to 8 cellenCHIPs on its deck, representing a total of 3072 individual wells, therefore enabling sample preparation for downstream sequencing of up to 3072 single cells per run.

Customized solutions

cellenCHIP are sold either as blank substrates or pre-loaded with oligo-barcodes. If you would like cellenCHIP loaded with specific reagents or with barcodes tailored to your needs, please contact our custom services team.

Benefits of the cellenCHIP

  • Cost-saving: over 95% volume reduction compared to standard 384-well microplate
  • Recovery: optimal design for maximum solution recovery during pooling
  • Sensitivity: reduction in reaction volume allows significant increase in sensitivity
  • Versatile: compatible with existing microplate-based protocols requiring successive reagent additions
  • Transparent: allowing high resolution imaging of cells in nanowells
  • Tailored: well barcoding available as a custom service for your applications
