VIPS™ Single Cell Seeding System

VIPS – a new product developed for single cell dispensing into well plates for cell line development.

VIPS SystemVIPS ("Verified In-situ Plate Seeding") builds upon the wide adoption, regulatory acceptance and established benefits of a limiting dilutions (LD) approach, but then most significantly it dramatically increases the plate seeding efficiency. This is achieved by a unique process, called SMART LD™, whereby imaging of the well is carried out immediately after a cell dispensing event and automated cell detection confirms whether a single cell was dispensed or not. This is an iterative process repeated several times over to ensure a final plate with a resultant high occupancy of single cells in wells, most of which will grow out to form colonies. The system includes facilities to support the statistical qualification of the seeding process, to both validate the seeding protocol and to provide ongoing quality control when scaling up throughput. VIPS is an ideal single cell seeding platform for customers who have already purchased the Cell Metric imager.

The Cell Metric® Family

The Cell Metric family of well plate imagers is the ideal solution to your cell line development needs.

Cell Metric®

Cell MetricThe Cell Metric is our most affordable system, ideal for small to medium projects. It provides fast, high-quality whole-well imaging, ideal for identifying single cells on the day of seeding for cell line development workflows. It can also be used for confluence meansurement, proliferation monitoring and cell based assays. For unattended operation, it can also be integrated into a robot workcell. Read more...


Cell Metric® CLD

Cell Metric CLDThe Cell Metric® CLD is ideal for larger and more frequent projects. It offers all of the functionality of the standard Cell Metric®, with the addition of an environmentally controlled automated microplate loader so that 10 microplates at a time can be processed without intervention.
