cellenONE X1

cellenONE® X1 is our first single cell isolation and dispensing platform. It offers a fully automated and integrated system with high speed and precision robotics.

Based on IBSCITM, it allows visualization and isolation of a range of cells and particles (from 2 to 70µm diameter).


  • Technical Specifications

    2 microplate holders compatible with 96, 384, 1536wp, and microwell substrates

    Up to 2 nanoliter dispensing channels (only one is used for single cell isolation)

    Temperature control from -20°C to 120°C

    Humidity and dew point control

Unique Features


Single Cell Sequencing
Open platform Choose your substrate (96, 384, 1536wp or microwells)
Versatile Suitable for a range of sequencing methods
Adaptable Isolate cells, nuclei (from FF or FFPE tissues), microbeads
Optional Use a second dispensing channel for nanoliter dispensing of reagents (barcodes, lysis buffers…)

Cell Line Development
Gentle Acoustic technology ensures outstanding cell viability
Efficient Only single cell are dispensed, cell line development time can be slashed by several weeks
Sterile For fully sterile processing now comes integrated into BSC environment
cellenONE can also be integrated into a biosafety cabinet (BSC) to ensure an appropriate biosafety level.

Single CHO travelling inside the dispensing capillary

Outstanding accuracy

No doublets

Unseen Recovery

Suitable for most cell types


Single cells from dissociated lung cancer spheroids successfully isolated onto a microscope slide. Every position contains one single cell.

Unlike other technologies (microdroplet, microfluidic traps), doublets can be completely excluded and only single cells are dispensed.


Results from 5x100 positions filled with single cells from four different cells samples. Single cells rate is indicated in pink, up to 99% for A549 cells; in white are empty positions and in grey, multiple cells positions.

High Clonal Recovery

Automate cloning

Reduce consumable consumption



Outstanding clonal recoveries were observed with 96% , 94% and 94% of wells containing single colonies in 96, 384 and 1536 MTP, respectively.

Additionally, the remaining wells were empty and did not contain multiple colonies.
