ARRALYZE®, the life science division of LPKF Laser & Electronics SE, is proud to announce the commercial availability of CellShepherd®. Following a successful beta testing phase in 2023, this groundbreaking platform is now ready to revolutionize cell-based research and development in biomedicine and various areas of the life sciences.
CellShepherd®: Redefining Single-cell Analysis
Developed by ARRALYZE®, CellShepherd® addresses the urgent need for advanced functional cell screening technologies in academic and industrial laboratories. It is distinguished by ARRALYZE’s proprietary nanowell glass arrays, which miniaturize cell-based assays while allowing real-time monitoring at the single-cell level.
This autonomous platform features precise nanoliter dosage in glass wells and supports (co-)cultivation under climate-controlled sterile conditions. Its capabilities extend to real-time imaging through a bright field microscope and three fluorescence channels.
By utilizing advanced AI-driven analyses, CellShepherd® precisely counts and tracks cells, providing essential insights into various parameters. This innovation promises a new era of scientific research characterized by precision, control, and profound insights.
Meeting Market Demands: The ARRALYZE® Vision
CellShepherd® aims to meet the growing demand for technologies that enable the examination of small and large cell populations at the single-cell level and the isolation of target cells. Taking a holistic approach, ARRALYZE® enables customers to uncover individual characteristics of heterogeneous cell populations, gain insights into experiment kinetics, and monitor functionality at various time points.
This approach overcomes challenges such as harsh experimental conditions, limited control of the microenvironment, and difficulties in maintaining cell viability.
