Overview

IN A COMPETITIVE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT, LIGHTNING DRIVES INNOVATION.

The Lightning platform lets you directly visualize phenotype and function of 100s to 1000s of individual cells and cell-cell interactions in real time. This agile platform provides ownership and visibility into every step of your experiment, flexibility to run a multitude of assays, and fast iteration that drives discovery.

Design the process

PRECISELY ASSEMBLE, CONTROL, AND CHARACTERIZE INDIVIDUAL CELL-CELL INTERACTIONS.

Powerful software gives you ultimate control over assay set-up, read-out and live cell recovery. Select individual cells for import into NanoPen™ chambers or auto-import cells based on user-defined characteristics. Visually monitor cells during culture and assay, then export those with desired characteristics.

T Cell Software

TEST FUNCTION

BUILD MULTIPLEX OR SERIAL ASSAYS. RECOVER THE MOST INTERESTING INDIVIDUAL CELLS.

Flow reagents and media in and out of NanoPens to deliver bead- and cell-based assays. Track the same cell across multiple assay time points and select individual live cells for export based on their phenotype.

Lightning Assay

ACCELERATE INSIGHTS

CATALOG FUNCTION AND PHENOTYPE OF 1000s OF INDIVIDUAL CELLS IN DAYS.

Working at nanoliter scale, reactions are fast and precise and can be carried out on individual cells. No need to culture cells for days in order to generate quantifiable signals.
