WOLF G2 Cell Sorter

Benchtop microfluidic cell sorting.

Two Lasers and up to Nine Colors

WOLF G2 Cell Sorter

At < 2 psi, the WOLF G2 are gentler than any conventional cell sorters, enabling healthier cells post-sort, especially for engineered lines, primary cells, and stem cells.

All laser configurations afford < 250 MESF sensitivity, along with forward and back scatter, providing as low as 1 μm resolution.

At 2 cubic feet, NanoCellect’s benchmark for access and performance allows every lab for the flexibility to do analysis and sorting into tubes or 96- and 384-well plates.

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

Disposable, aerosol-free microfluidic cartridge allows for sterile sorting that protects the sample from the environment and scientist from the sample.

With two lasers and up to nine fluorescent channels, the WOLF G2 aligns with a broad set of research applications and experiments. Three different laser configurations allows options specific to your needs.

Healthy Cells. Broad Capabilities. Better Science.

The WOLF was originally created by a team of scientists and engineers who wanted to solve a classic challenge in biological research: how to sort cells effectively, easily, and of high quality. Now, as science continues to move forward into increasingly complex realms, the WOLF is moving forward with it. The new WOLF G2 instrument has significantly expanded the capabilities of gentle benchtop microfluidic cell sorting with two lasers and up to nine colors, while maintaining simple workflows for either bulk sorting or single-cell dispensing. Single-cell sorting can be completed in 96- or 384-well plates when using the WOLF G2 in conjunction with the N1 Single-Cell Dispenser. This flexibility in performance, along with the additional abilities of the second laser, makes it ideal for use in many different research fields and application areas like single-cell genomics, cell line development, gene editing, antibody discovery, immunology, infectious disease, basic research, and more.

Cartridge based fluidics

NanoCellect utilizes unique and proprietary microfluidic sorting cartridges for bulk sorting and single-cell dispensing. The cartridges employ a piezoelectric actuator and operates at less than 2 psi allows for gentle sorting that preserves viability and RNA integrity. Cartridges have a 100% disposable fluidic pathway, making it ideal for labs with many samples where cross-contamination or biohazard cleanup is an issue. The microfluidic cartridges are sterile and produce no aerosols, making it some of the safest sorting on the market. The cartridges also allow for maximum flexibility by allowing users to sort using their own buffers and media and only consume about 50 mL of sheath fluid in 1 day.

Product Specs Table Optics

The WOLF G2 uses laser-based flow cytometry technology for detecting and sorting a variety of cell types, including mammalian, plant, fungal, and bacterial cells. The WOLF G2 utilizes typical Forward- (FSC) and Back- (BSC) scatter detectors—as well as 3 different laser configurations to broaden its capabilities. In combination with the N1 single cell dispenser, scientists can complete both bulk and single-cell sorting. A simple cytometer, with powerful impact, allows researchers to sort their own cells on their own bench.

Software

  • WOLFViewer software walks users though a simple workflow by offering step-by-step wizards to make the sorting process as straightforward as possible. As a result, the software uses an intuitive workflow allowing users to quickly complete setup.
  • After setup, WOLFViewer makes analyzing and creating gates simple—while still providing full-featured flow cytometry tools.
  • Key tools like automatic compensation and index sorting, are streamlined and included.
  • When sorting is complete, shutdown and cleanup is literally less than a minute, allowing users to rapidly conclude their work.
  • Researchers have the option of 2-way sorts for bulk sorting and 1-way sorts for single-cell dispensing through the WOLFViewer software.
