FluidFM BOT for injection into adherent cells - Brochure

Information Materials / Products

The FluidFM BOT is a powerful tool for single cell biology. Conventional microinjection has its limits: these include limited cell viability, time-consuming experiments and difficulties in injecting into “small” adherent cells. The FluidFM BOT overcomes these limits.

6. AMAZINGLY EASY TO USE. TOWARDS FULL AUTOMATION INTUITIVE OPERATIONAL WITHIN HOURS SIMPLE POINT & CLICK TO INJECT EASY INTUITIVE SOFTWARE & WORKFLOW A high defi nition image of the cells appears on the screen. Simply click with the mouse on the cytoplasm or the nucleus of the targeted cells, and press “OK” It is as simple as that. Simple preparation, extensive automation and our intuitive FluidFM ARYA operator software allows more or less any user to inject more than a hundred cells per hour. For the injection of Lucifer Yellow dye into HeLa cells average rates of 100-300 cells per hour can easily be reached . The software-empowered injection specifi c workfl ow allows all users to be in full control of their experimental parameters and eliminates worries on the operation of the instrument. Due to the fully programmable FluidFM nanosyringe exchange and washing features, all experiments are executed in a clean and precise fashion reducing contamination risks and human error to a minimum. The FluidFM BOT system boosts productivity by minimizing laborious sample swapping and manual intervention during measurements. Subject to change without notice. Copyright © 2018 Cytosurge AG, Switzerland CELL-CONTEXT PRESERVING AND NON-DESTRUCTIVE. STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY Conventional microinjection has its limits: these include limited cell viability, time-consuming experiments and diffi culties in injecting into “small” adherent cells. With FluidFM, compounds can be repeatedly injected into the same cell in a cell-context preserving and non- destructive manner, with more than 95% of the injected cells surviving. The injected cells can also be cultivated and analyzed, and their evolution captured over time with the integrated time-lapse and video features. Only 15 minutes are needed to prepare the cells, the well-plates and the nanosyringes before being able to perform the fi rst series of injections. The FluidFM nanosyringe is capable of successfully injecting adherent cells of around 10 μm in size, such as iPS cells. "SMALL" INJECT INTO CELLS ~ 10 μm TIME SAVING 15 MINUTES PREPARATION TIME GENTLE 95+ CELL VIABILITY AUTOMATION BOOSTS YOUR PRODUCTIVITY. Inject over 200 cells per hour. F luid FM ARYA OPERATOR SOFTWARE. Simple point and click cell selection. GENTLE MICROINJECTION. Repeatedly inject into the same living cell.

5. Perform fast injection of CRISPR-Cas complexes, even in cell lines difficult to modify with conventional CRISPR delivery methods. Using the FluidFM BOT for Injection to deliver your CRISPR-Cas complex, you can selectively choose the cell you want to edit within a cell culture. This is performed without affecting the neighboring cells. Injection time for the complex is only 2 seconds per cell with a gentle 75 mbar pressure corresponding to approximately 30 femtoliters of injected volume. With FluidFM injection, deliver your CRISPR-Cas complex directly to where it is required: the nucleus. DIRECTLY INTO THE NUCLEUS. F luidFM ® EMPOWERS CRISPR GENE EDITING PRECISE SELECT WHICH CELL TO EDIT FAST 2 SECONDS PER CELL SIMPLE EDIT DIFFICULT TO TRANSFECT CELLS FOR DIFFICULT TO TRANSFECT CELLS. F luidFM ® ENHANCES PLASMID TRANSFECTION CELL FRIENDLY NO TOXIC COMPOUNDS RELIABLE >80% TRANSFECTION EFFICIENCY FAST UP TO 150 CELLS PER HOUR CRISPR-CAS9 MICROINJECTION. Fluorescently labeled CRISPR- Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complex delivered into HeLa cells nuclei. Transfection of plasmids through microinjection using FluidFM technology enables the delivery of genetic material even into difficult to transfect cells. The FluidFM BOT for Injection allows to transfect up to 150 cells per hour, with a transfection efficiency over 80%. In contrast to conventional transfection methods, no toxic compounds are necessary to allow the DNA vector to enter the cell. FluidFM injection delivers the genetic material directly into the nucleus, leading to expression of the insert in around 15 hours. PLASMID INJECTION. pmCherry-TRIM21 expression 16h post- injection.

4. ANY SOLUBLE COMPOUNDS. F luidFM ® – RELIABLE MICROINJECTION The FluidFM BOT is an unmatched tool to introduce a vast variety of materials of your choice into a cell, effortlessly. From nanoparticles to proteins, CRISPR RNA, and plasmids, the FluidFM nanosyringe can be loaded with – and thus deliver – virtually any kind of liquid-based solution containing particles below 500 nm in diameter. Efficiency of the microinjection using FluidFM technology has already been demonstrated in various kind of cell types such as human cervical cancer cells (HeLa), human embryonic kidney cells (HEK) or human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPS). NUCLEIC ACIDS DNA, RNA, PLASMIDS PROTEINS ANTIBODIES, CHROMATIN REMODELERS,... DRUGS NANOPARTICLES < 500 nm DOWN TO FEMTOLITERS. INJECTED VOLUME ESTIMATION Working with fluorescent compounds, the microfabricated FluidFM nanosyringe serves as a precise reference volume for fluorescence intensity. Due to manufacturing precision, the constant dimension of the FluidFM nanosyringe allows an accurate estimation of the injected volume for each cell, by measuring the PRECISE FEMTOLITER SCALE SIMPLE IMAGEJ MACRO PROVIDED RELIABLE HIGH MANUFACTURING PRECISION cells fluorescence intensity after injection in comparison with that of the FluidFM nanosyringe. To facilitate the calculation of the injected volume, we provide an easy to use ImageJ macro. This volume information is key for many experiments, for example when determining a dose-response relationship. Subject to change without notice.

3. With the FluidFM BOT for Injection into single cells and the newly developed FluidFM nanosyringe, you can perform high-throughput injection of many compounds selectively into either cytoplasms or nuclei of adherent cell lines. This is achieved in a cell- context preserving and non-destructive manner. Injection using the FluidFM technology is an incredible tool for biologists in cell line or drug development. Particularly, the FluidFM BOT for Injection has been designed specifi cally to address bottlenecks in the pipelines of drug development and genetic editing at the single cell level.
