Image-Based Cell Sorter

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Tokyo has developed an intelligent Image-Activated Cell Sorter (IACS) with an ultrafast Spectrum Instrumentation digitizer at the heart. This high-throughput, image-based cell-sorting technology can process cells with high throughput and accuracy, and could potentially enable machine-based, scientific discovery in biological, pharmaceutical, and medical sciences and, in particular, cancer, where it could sort for the slight differences between cancerous and noncancerous cells.The system uses real-time, machine intelligence technology to provide a data management infrastructure, allowing cells to be accurately sorted at an unprecedented rate. It combines high-throughput cell imaging, cell focusing, and cell sorting with a software-hardware data management infrastructure, utilizing a number of different technologies including optics, micro fluids, electronics, mechanics, and data processing.
