Rare & Single Cells

Cutting-edge Technologies for Fast and Easy Detection and Isolation of Single Cells

Enriched cell populations from tumor biopsies, endothelial tissue, histological sections, stem cells, and other materials are a prerequisite for meaningful analysis and patient profiling. MMI’s technology for the detection and isolation of single live cells, embryonic cells and circulating tumor cells are utilized for diagnostics and in clinical oncology.

  • Detection and isolation of single and rare cells in suspension, e. g. Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC’s) by microscopic capture – MMI CellEctor
  • Non-invasive pre-natal diagnosis (NIPD): Detection and isolation of embryonic cells in maternal blood or cervical smear – MMI CellEctor
  • Detection and isolation of single cells from tissue sections, smears or cytospins by laser microdissection – MMI CellCut
  • Scanning of fluorescent samples for the detection and isolation of rare cells by microscopic capture – MMI CellEctor
  • Isolation and manipulation of single cells by optical trapping – MMI CellManipulator
  • Combined solutions for integrated workflows – Customized Products

"At Simfo, we are interested in analyzing molecular profile of circulating tumor cells (CTCs), because CTCs reflect the real status of tumor genotypes. CTCs exhibit high heterogeneity within a patient and for this reason we analyze individual CTCs for KRAS, BRAF and EGFR mutations. The MMI CellEctor instrument allows us to precisely select single CTCs from patient samples in order to individually analyze their genomic integrity – an important pre-requisite for our research."
