CometChip®, 30 micron


The CometChip® is an array of spatially encoded micropores (30 micron width), patterned on agarose. 96 separate macrowells, each containing ~400 micropores, are created by inserting the CometChip® into the a magnetically sealable cassette (96-Well CometChip® System).

Available Size(s): 1 CometChip Catalog Number: 4260-096-01 Category:



Single-cell capture

  • Facilitates automated imaging
  • No overlapping comets
  • Easy definition between head and tail
  • Minimize Cell Stress – Gravity capture of single-cells
  • Reduces cell shearing with wash and treatment steps
  • Avoids time-consuming trypsin treatment
