Reliable, fast, inexpensive cell sorter/dispenser for any single cell lab.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Isolate single plant cells

"The Namocell Hana was an excellent purchase for our lab. It isolates single cells into 96 or 384 well plates as well as advertised and is incredibly fast and easy to use. The initialization and shutdown times are merely a few minutes, compared to ~30-45 minutes with a FACS or BioSorter, and cell sorting/isolation is often less than 10 minutes for a whole plate. The software and initial setup is easy and straightforward and the Namocell customer service has been quick to respond. The primary benefit of the Hana has been that we no longer have to rely on shared instruments during the pandemic. Overall, we would highly recommend this instrument for any lab doing single cell research."

A capable fluorescence cell sorter, provided at a reasonable price point.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Isolation and cloning of fluorescent cells

"The instrument has performed well. It has effectively isolated our cells of interest and increased the rate and ease of generating clonal cell lines with our preferred characteristics. Due to its simplicity and clear user interface, it has permitted rapid training of lab personnel who utilize the equipment with minimal supervision. Any requests for support and guidance during initial set-up and training were rapidly addressed with thoughtful consideration."

Great, affordable instrument for iPSC and CRISPR applications!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:iPSC and CRISPR - clonal cell line generation

"Our stem cell core facility was looking for ways to speed up our human induced pluripotent cell cloning to generate clonal cell lines and to analyze our gene editing efficiencies in single cells. Our criteria for an instrument for single cell dispensing was 1) sterility, 2) gentle on cells, 3) ease of use, and 4) reasonable cost. The Namocell fitted our criteria perfectly. The instrument was relatively easy to use and technical support was excellent! We are able to reduce the time and effort for generating clonal CRISPR-engineered iPSC lines significantly. The instrument requires very little maintenance and users do not need to be highly trained with the main requirement being good aseptic technique. We are excited to use the Namocell potentially for other single cell applications."

Excellent aftercare.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Cell sorting on zebrafish embryonic cardiac cells

"During cell sorting, air in the tubes caused machine trouble, but this was quickly remedied by troubleshooting via video chat."

Fantastic customer service, useful addition to our equipment and ability!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell sorting

"Although we have yet to truly use the Hana outside of training, the knowledge and customer service of the Namocell team made this addition to our workflow easy and enjoyable. Our other site in the UK has had a Hana, and on their recommendation we purchased one of our own. Daniel and Junyu answered all of our questions, and were excellent resources when we had additional questions or needed assistance. We look forward to continuing to use the Hana!"

For single cell into plates, one of the easiest to use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cell sorting for single cell sequencing

"We've been using the Hana to do single cell sorting for genomics/transcriptomics applications as well as for colony selection for tissue culture. We're overall very satisfied with our results and find setup to be very easy, as well as standard maintenance. After sterility protocols (which can take an hour), being able to immediately jump to sorting in less than ten minutes has saved us time and precious samples. When our valve failed during the early part of the pandemic, we were able to ship the unit back with an easy replacement and turnaround of two weeks! Service has been excellent as well."

Great instrument that can improve workflows.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cell line development

"The Hana has had a positive impact on our workflow. We are now able, with a high degree of confidence, to generate clonal populations of cells with reduced cytotoxicity (compared to FACS) while simultaneously saving hands-on time due to not needing to immediately screen for single-cells after manual limited dilutions. In many cell lines, we see a significantly higher efficiency of clonality from plate to plate compared to our previous methods. Setting up the instrument took some time. There was a relatively short learning curve on how to operate the instrument as well as another learning curve to understand the instruments nuances. Once understood, there have been no issues that couldn't be resolved with technical support, which was always rapid."

The Hana allows easy and efficient single cell sorting of iPSCs. Great value!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Single cell sorting for iPSC cloning

"I've been using the Hana for single cell sorting of edited iPSCs. The Hana allows the sorting of cells in their own media, which help their viability during the process. I like that beside sorting based on forward and side scatter, you could increase the viability and outgrowth using live staining and the fluorescent channel available on the instrument. Customer service has been extremely helpful and quick in responding whenever I had issues or questions. When I had to ship the Hana to the manufacturer for service, the turnaround time was about a week."

Great customer support!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:CRISPR

"Very happy with the user-friendly interface as well as the availability of customer support. Having purchased the Hana during a time of high COVID restrictions I am very impressed with the level of support provided both virtually and (safely) in-person."

The Hana Single Cell Dispenser makes single cell isolation and sorting effortless with one laser and 2 fluorescent channels.

This benchtop instrument uses proprietary microfluidics technology that combines flow cytometry and liquid dispensing to sort and dispense single cells directly into 96-well or 384-well plate. It simplifies and empowers a number of single cell applications, including cell line development and engineering, single cell genomics and proteomics, iPSC and CRISPR cloning, antibody discovery, single cell mass spec, synthetic biology, and rare cell isolation such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and circulating fetal cells. It is easy-to-use, zero maintenance, affordable and requires no special training to operate.

Fast – Dispense single cells into a 96-well plate in 1 min or a 384-well plate in 6 min, 2 min system initialization
Gentle – Low soring pressure (<2 psi) preserves cell viability and integrity and delivers high outgrowth
Easy – Fully automated, no calibration needed, no clogging, zero maintenance
Compact – Lightweight and portable, easily fits inside a cell culture hood
Flexible – Sort primary cells, cell lines, nuclei, protoplasts, bacteria, yeast, algae and more
