Treat your cells gently in preparation for critical single-cell
genomic and proteogenomic applications.
Laminar Wash technology gently washes cells, minimizing gene expression changes during sample prep.
Improve cell viability and reduce stress on cells; cleaner samples with fewer doublets and debris.
See examples of enhanced cell retention and reduced doublets.

GET RELIABLY CONSISTENT DATA.
Cell clumping, poor retention of cells with already low cell counts, and unwashed residual nucleic acids are just a few symptoms of poor cell washing that impacts single-cell sequencing and proteogenomics. Centrifugation also induces cellular stress on samples, resulting in erroneous gene expression results.
Sample prep is extremely important in single-cell genomics and proteogenomics, especially for single-cell gene expression and immune profiling. While mRNA transcripts are being barcoded, cellular mRNA leakage (increased background) or mRNA degradation (decreased signal) significantly impacts these sensitive measurements. Unlike with flow cytometry, gating out debris or groups of cells is not possible in single-cell sequencing. The cell preparation must be as clean as possible and yield single cells.
Using the Laminar Wash system saves time with fewer manual manipulations. Gently washing cells without unnatural centrifugal forces maintains cell integrity and viability, while ensuring gene or protein expression changes are biological, instead of due to workflow.

Comparison of a cell washing workflow for the preparation of a single-cell suspension for single-cell sequencing analysis. Laminar Wash technology is equally effective in washing but without the use of a centrifuge.
BENEFITS OF LAMINAR WASH FOR SINGLE CELL SEQUENCING & PROTEOGENOMICS
Affordable and simple automation of sample prep by Laminar Wash technology offers many benefits including:
- Enhanced cell retention, especially with low numbers of cells
- Improved viability and reduced stress on cells
- Reduced debris and cell clumping (more singlets!)
- Improved resolution of cell populations
- Less hands-on time and more high-throughput
DATA USING THE LAMINAR WASH SYSTEMS
Improved retention, better multiplexing from single cell proteogenomic experiments.

Laminar Wash consistently retained higher numbers of cells, compared to traditional centrifuge-based methods. This is especially true for samples that have a very low number of cells. Data courtesy of ImmunAI, adapted from Dr. Antonio Montalbano's webinar with Curiox Biosystems..
