Scientists use centrifuge-powered sedimentation to separate and collect cells for a variety of research and medical applications. However, high-speed centrifugation creates a tightly packed pellet containing both the desired cells and unwanted debris. Centrifuge separation is also a time-consuming multi-step manual process involving considerable mechanical force—from spinning, transferring, and washing. Laminar flow-based technology uses automated microfluidics to flow buffer over cell suspensions. As buffer passes gently over the sample, it captures smaller debris for aspiration, leaving behind a clean cell suspension.
