microFAST SC – Complete Solution for Single Cell ICPMS Applications
The ability to introduce single cells into an ICPMS and measure the elemental content in each cell, or tag to each cell, accurately takes a dedicated, well-designed sample introduction system. Having this ability allows for investigators to better understand how much of a specific nanoparticle, metallodrug, or metal-based compound enters the cell. These cells or nanoparticles will vary in size from a few nm’s up to a few 100 μm’s. The typical cell types of interest will vary and with that the stability of the cell-line also varies, such that a gentle, controlled nebulization must be employed in order to not disrupt or lyse the cell.
- Flexible sample volumes - μL to mL of sample
- Ensure cells stay intact, no cell lysing
- Low pressure sample introduction
- High transport efficiency
