Not recommended for cell line development if you can afford a better option.
Application Area: Assurance of monoclonality for cell line development
"The first generation CSI is easy to use and operate. The major issue is the well to well variation of image quality. Unlike its major competitor, CSI does not have the function to correct for any distortion of the plate plastic such that a lot of images are out of focus. What it means for cell line development is that a lot of seemly monoclonal clones cannot be used due to poor image quality. However it does serve its purpose, monoclonality assurance for cell line development."
The CloneSelect™ Imager is a high-throughput automated system for imaging and analyzing mammalian colony formation and confluence. Tracking the growth of a colony from a single cell is effortless as barcoded plates are tracked over time. Automated fluorescence or white light image acquisition and analysis provide accurate, objective, and consistent results. With the ability to image a 96-well plate in 90 seconds, the imager will increase throughput and productivity.
