Wolf Cell Sorter Features

It’s time to move beyond the traditional flow cytometry thinking of “how many colors and how fast.” The explosive growth of the life and medical sciences industries demands continued innovation, faster times to discovery and answer, and effective solutions to help scientists make an impact. NanoCellect® has provided just that.

Delivering sterile, portable, intuitive solutions for sorting fragile samples, NanoCellect is pushing the status quo of flow cytometry to empower biomedical scientists with higher viability cells, no chance of sample-to-sample contamination, and efficient workflows

  • SMALL: Under 2 cubic feet and 45 pounds—NanoCellect’s new benchmark for access and performance makes cell sorting and analysis possible in every lab.
  • GOES ANYWHERE: The instrument is portable and fits in any hood.
  • INTUITIVE SOFTWARE: Unlike traditional cell sorter software, easy to use and requires minimal training.

Advanced Microfluidic Technology

  • LOW SHEAR STRESS:  Gentle on-chip sorting minimizes shear stress and improves cell viability versus jet-in-air or droplet based sorters.
  • NO CONTAMINATION:  Disposable cartridge eliminates sample-to-sample contamination and aerosols. Protects the users from cells and protects the cells from users.
  • FLEXIBILITY: A selection of sterile cartridges designed to analyze, sort, or plate single cells.

N1 Single Cell Dispenser

filler image

A module for the WOLF Cell Sorter to sort and dispense into 96-well or 384-well plates.

The N1 Single Cell Dispenser is seamlessly integrated into the intuitive software. Select single-cell from the dropdown menu, map out your plate, and hit go. The WOLF and dispenser work together to deliver plated cells in a compact and affordable format. After sorting, data from each cell is indexed well-by-well, allowing for confirmation of the plated cell.

  • Quickly and effortlessly plate your cells into 96 or 384 well plates.
  • Output flexibility allows users to dispense 1 or “n” cells per well.
  • Excellent for single-cell cloning or single-cell RNA-seq.

Novel Microchip-Based Cell Sorting Technology

The WOLF sorter uses an on-chip piezoacoustic actuator that gently directs cells into collection channels. This 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.

Maintain cell viability

Sort cells with greater confidence that they will survive and provide better results. The WOLF Cell Sorter uses a totally different approach compared to conventional jet-in-air cell sorters. This is critical for sensitive cells like Stem Cells where high pressures can damage cells and affect their biological behavior. With an on-chip fast valve, NanoCellect’s sorting mechanism gently guides cells into collection channels.

No dangerous aerosols

The sorting happens inside a microfluidic chip and therefore avoids the creation of dangerous aerosols normally emitted by traditional cell sorters. Smarter cell sorting allows greater flexibility in sorting human samples or samples normally requiring work in a hood.

WOLFViewer – Flow Cytometry Software

filler image

The WOLFViewer software has an intuitive workflow menu in the upper left corner that walks users through their experimental process. Novice users are guided step-by-step, while expert users can skip ahead and change settings in the Advanced Settings dropdown menu. New users can be performing their first sorts in about 30 minutes and can be on their own on day one.

Disposable Fluidics

Everything that the sample touches is sterile and disposable and gives you peace of mind that there will not be any contamination of your cells. When you are done, you can simply toss away. Whether you are developing CRISPR modified cell lines or difficult to grow samples, you can count on having sterile cartridges each time.

Disposable Cartridges

filler image

No more sample-to-sample contamination

Unique to NanoCellect are our disposable cartridges that allow for bulk sorting, single-cell sorting, or analysis only. The sorting cartridges use a piezoacoustic actuator that gently directs cells into collection channels; an embedded cell sorting verification system gives instant feedback of sorting accuracy. And because the cartridges are disposable, there is no chance of sample-to-sample contamination or biohazardous aerosols.

Highlights of NanoCellect's microfluidic cartridges:

  • Cartridges are individually-wrapped in sterile packing to avoid cross contamination.
  • Anything that the sample or sheath fluid touches is disposable.
  • A gentle sorting mechanism results in improved viability of cells and higher outgrowth.
  • No aerosols are produced during sorting.
  • Uses only a small fraction of sheath (~50mL for an entire day).
  • Clean-up in 1 minute: once finished for the day simply discard the cartridge.
  • Versatility to sort or analyze a wide variety of cell types (1um to 30um).


Prof. Dr. Angela Ciuffi, Univ. de Lausanne, Faculté de Biologie et Médecine

"The powerful combination of flow cytometric analysis, sorting and single cell dispensing in an intuitive and easy-to-use device as the Wolf Cell Sorter by NanoCellect allows for affordable, high-quality and reliable analyses and experiments."

"The disposable single-use cartridges ensures the safe analysis of infected samples as well as the absence of sample cross-contamination without the need of time-consuming extensive washing of the equipment."
