working principle

droplet with one cell

high resolution optics and software algorithm detect a single cell in the nozzle

droplet with a single cell is ejected while pneumatic shutter is closed

droplet with a single cell lands in the dedicated well

schematic

1 cartridge

2 cell suspension

3 pneumatic shutter

4 free-flying droplet

5 micro-well plate

droplet with more than one cell

high resolution optics and software algorithm detect more than one cell in the nozzle

droplet with more than one cell is ejected and immediately deflected into waste by pneumatic shutter

droplet without a cell

high resolution optics and software algorithm detect no cell in the nozzle

empty droplet is ejected and immediately deflected into waste by pneumatic shutter
