Unlock a new dimension in cellular analysis.
With Magnetic Levitation Technology there are no complicated fluidics or preparation steps. Simply load the sample and process it.Read More
Live cells speak louder. Unlike all other sorting methods, levitation is gentle on the cells and does not damage or injure cells.Read More
Remove bias from cell analysis by eliminating labels and dyes. Catch cells based on what they are, not what marker they expressed.Read More
The platform is simple, allowing users to begin with unprocessed whole blood samples or any sample with cells in suspension. In a matter of minutes, the instrument and its software automatically perform levitation; label-free separation; quantification of results based on high-resolution imaging; and analysis by cell number, morphology, and levitation profile. Internally, the system relies on a cell densitometry platform consisting of two magnets mounted on either side of a millimeter-wide capillary channel with mirrors on either side to measure levitation height with a microscope. Both brightfield and fluorescence images are collected.
Especially useful with precious or difficult samples, magnetic levitation allows users to separate live from dead cells in a fast, simple and gentle process.
For detection and screening of circulating tumor cells, the Levitas system solves key technical challenges.
Accurate separation and identification of key cell types, such as activated leukocytes, could overcome key challenges in CAR-T therapy.
