The manipulation and interaction with a single cell constitutes the backbone of today's Life Science research. Taking advantage of its unique way of motion, the miBot loaded with a micro capillary can perform complex and accurate maneuver in order to pick a single cell and carry it where your experiment needs it. The above video records a hands-on experiment showing the manipulation of single mouse primary bone marrow cell (10um diameter) for blood stem cell extraction purposes.The experimental set-up consists of:
Once the cell sits where it belongs, use the micropipette or another tool to interact with it. The following video shows an example of mechanical stimuli on a single cell upon contact with a glass capillary positioned by a miBot micromanipulator.
