WOLF cell sorter

WOLF Cell Sorter

  • Healthy Cells

    At <2 psi, the WOLF is 30 times 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 Cell Sorters

NanoCellect designed an entirely new type of microfluidic cell sorter based on modern flow cytometry methods. By using proven detection technologies, we have been able to focus on innovative cartridge technology and accessible, intuitive software that makes the operation simple and safe for researchers and their samples. 

Cell isolation products are typically bulky and require a lot of specialized equipment around it. That’s why the WOLF flow cytometry instrument is made 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. 

Plus, the software is simple enough to allow new users to perform sorting on day one. Combined with the fact that it’s the most affordable cell sorter on the market, this makes WOLF available 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 cell sorting and laser-based technology capable of detecting mammalian and microbial cells. For FACS (or fluorescence-activated cell sorting) 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.

Among flow cytometry sorters, WOLF stands shoulders above its competition. Avoid the hassle! If you want a simple cell sort, easy cell sort, and a gentle cell sorter, NanoCellect has your back.

WOLFViewer

Flow cytometry software

 

The WOLFViewer software has an intuitive workflow menu that walks users through their experimental process. Novice users are guided step-by-step, while expert users can utilize advanced analysis tools. New users can be performing their first sorts in about 30 minutes and can be on their own on day one. The WOLFViewer:

 

WOLF system
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

When looking for a fragile cell sorting system the WOLF flow cytometry instrument provides intuitive analytics for an overall simple cell sorting solution.
