WOLF cell sorter-hero1

WOLF Cell Sorter

  • Healthy Cells

    At <2 psi, the WOLF is gentler than any conventional cell sorter, allowing for higher populations of healthy, sorted cells.

  • Contaminant and biohazard free

    Disposable, microfluidic cartridges, and no dangerous aerosol exposure allows for a highly sterile solution and a safer working environment.

  • Easy to use

    Intuitive software, fixed optics, no fluidics cart, less than one minute clean-up time.

  • Flexible

    At under 2 cubic feet, NanoCellect’s new benchmark for access and performance allows every lab the flexibility to do analysis, bulk, or single-cell sorting.

Redefining Benchtop

NanoCellect designed an entirely new type of cell sorter based on microfluidic sorting technology. By using solid, proven detection technologies, we have been able to focus on innovative cartridge technology and accessible, intuitive software that makes operation simple and safe for researchers and their samples. The machine is compact and stable enabling placement around the lab and in a hood. The sterile cartridge and tubing set protects cells from the environment and the researchers from biohazards. The software is simple enough to allow new users to perform sorting on day one. And the system is priced to be affordable at the individual lab level.

Novel Microchip-Based Cell Sorting Technology

Our sorter uses an on-chip piezoacoustic actuator that gently directs cells into collection channels. Our unique system allows cell analysis and sorting to take place within a disposable chip. This eliminates sample-to-sample contamination and biohazard aerosols. An embedded cell sorting verification system gives instant feedback of sorting accuracy.

488nm Laser and 3 Fluorescent Detectors

The WOLF Cell Sorter uses patented, microfluidic based sorting and laser-based technology capable of detecting mammalian and microbial cells. A sample of fluorescently labeled cells is focused into a microfluidic flow channel. Forward- and Back-Scatter signals are detected by silicon and PMT detectors, respectively. Fluorophores excited by the blue (488 nm) laser emit signals that are spectrally filtered to resolve up to 3 colors simultaneously using high-performance PMTs.

Intuitive Software


Flow cytometry software


The WOLFViewer software has an intuitive workflow menu in the upper left corner that walks users through their experimental process. Novice users are guided step-by-step, while expert users can skip ahead and change settings in the Advanced Settings dropdown menu. New users can be performing their first sorts in about 30 minutes and can be on their own on day one.

Is easy-to-use and without specialized training
Can be used by both beginners and experts
Moves complex settings to an Advanced Settings dropdown menu to reduce confusion
Can export data in the latest FCS standard file formats for compatibility with other flow software
Allows copy-and-paste of .pdf and .jpg plot images and data to other programs for rapid report and publication generation
