Droplet-based microfluidic is a powerful technology for encapsulation of single cell in droplet.
Poisson statistical law allows to predict the number of cells per droplets depending on the concentration in the sample and the intended droplet size.
The model can also be used to determine the concentration needed to get at most one cell per droplet.
Once the cells are individually encapsulated, it is possible to :
– test their behaviour toward chemicals
– sequence their genomes
– study their proliferation
These applications require a specific surfactant to obviously stabilize droplets, but it also need to be biocompatible to not interfere with the content of droplets.
Which is the case of our product FluoSurf.
