The Cell
Picking & Imaging System.
CELL HANDLER™

A novel Cell Picking & Imaging System by YAMAHA

Currently this model is commercially available only in Japan

What is CELL HANDLER™

CELL HANDLER™ offers new and revolutionary solutions for applications in biomedical field by utilizing our state of art ultra high speed pick and place robotic technologies.
The technology enables selection of the targeted cell and transferring it to a microplate (e.g. 384-well), a process that was very difficult by the conventional manual method, and image analysis in a high throughput and accurate manner.
*The cell mentioned in this web site is single cell and/or aggregated cells including spheroid and organoid.
