Why Use ClonaCell™ EasyPick?

  • Generate stable cell lines in only 14 days by combining the selection and cloning steps using ClonaCell™ media .
  • Isolate up to 200 clones per hour with this fully automated platform.
  • Disposable tips, CO-RE pipetting technology, monitored air displacement, and anti-droplet control eliminate the risk of sample cross-contamination or aerosol formation.
  • Designed with a modular platform to accommodate automation of upstream and downstream processes.
