Good product for researcher
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Single cell encapsulation

"I am using Pico-surf to stablize cell-laden droplets, it works very nice. the droplets are stable, and combining the use of pico-break, it's easy to break the emulsion and get the component out. the product is reliable and easy to use."

Good performance for our applications
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Droplet formation

"Droplets generated when using Pico-Surf are monodispersed with sufficient stability for our current applications. Ready to use solution is benefitial as it streamlines our work."

Batch variance has to be solved
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:ddPCR

"In general the product is good for droplet generation and ddPCR. However, we encountered issues with thermostability couple years ago due to (we suspect) batch variance from manufacturing. Once I bought 50 ml and realized that did not perform as well as it used to be. Hope this is fixed now."

Pico-Surf® is a patented range of biocompatible surfactants that are used in a variety of microdroplet and picodroplet applications. They act to stabilize picodroplets and their cellular or molecular contents. Picodroplets are highly stable over a wide range of temperatures and biological conditions, ensuring reliability and reproducibility.

Pico-Surf® is commonly used in research programs focusing on monoclonal antibody discovery, cell line development, synthetic biology, stem cell engineering, isolation and analysis, single cell genome editing (CRISPR-Cas9), single cell disease research, diagnostics, prognostics and more.

Key Features:

  • Facilitates generation of aqueous solution-in-oil picodroplets for a variety of biological assays.
  • Allows consistent formation and stabilization of picodroplets from 8 pL to 700 pL (diameter).
  • Animal Origin Free.
  • Manufactured to high quality standards through stringent quality assurance procedures.
  • Ready to use.
