Maximize Cell Retention and Minimize Reagent Consumption at Low Volumes

DropArray Microplates allow easy cell incubation at low volumes and can be optimized for a wide array of cell types and assays. Whether you are using immortalized cells for large-scale screening assays or limited-supply primary cells for studying specific toxicity effects, the DropArray platform is a valuable tool to help optimize protocols and expand assay capability. Researchers now have the ability to conserve use of precious cells, which provides measurable cost savings.

Suspension Cell Assays
B and T Cell Assays
PBMC Assays
Bone Marrow Cell Assays
Immuno-oncology Assays
Extensive cell loss during media changes, washings and screening can cause unreliable and inconsistent results, making many assays unfeasible. Gentle, low-velocity liquid exchange 'on-plate' helps retain cells and consistency for all protocols involving washing.
The liquid lid sealing fluid eliminates evaporation, while allowing efficient gas exchange.
High Content Assays Multi-step staining procedures add a huge (unsustainable) expense. Minimizing cell use helps drastically reduce antibody and reagent costs, up to 90%.

Differentiation Cell Assays
Scarce cells are expensive and hard to come by in large quantities. Minimizes cell use — use as little as 250 cells per well to preserve precious cells.
