Yamaha Motor unveils CELL HANDLER™ at SLAS2018* ( Booth #1938 ) in San Diego, held from February 3 to 7.
The innovative solutions are featured on Solutions Spotlight Presentations ( 4:00 PM – 4:20 PM, February 5 ).
*Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening
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.
Key features of CELL HANDLER™
Automation of cell selection, picking and transfer
Cell handling is done manually by scientists
CELL HANDLER™ reduces scientist’s work load
High speed and high accuracy by 8 Heads
Newly developed plunger-integrated type tip, Precision Tip™ gently transfers targeted cells from cell suspension in the Precision Chamber™.
*Precision Chamber™ and Precision Tip™ are disposable
Automatic selection by AI
AI integrated into CELL HANDLER™ learns preferences of scientists and handles cells automatically.
Learn preferences of scientists
Pick selected cells one by one
Transfer to microplate
Operation process of CELL HANDLER™
Precision Chamber™ containing cell suspension is placed in the CELL HANDLER™.
Select appropriate cells from the images created by high spec camera.

Selection of cells
Selected cells are handled by 8 heads gently and transferred to the wells of a microplate.
Aspirate the cells in Precision Chamber™
Transfer the cells to the microplate
Images of the cells on the microplate are captured at high speed and their characteristics are digitalized.
This process enables efficient confirmation of cell information.
