Digital cell-sorting is the system used to sort or isolate the intended cells or particles from fluid samples. Flow cytometers aids these systems in separating varied types of cells based on their properties. This system uses Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) and cell imaging microscopes methods for characterizing the various particles or cells. Digital cell-sorting system helps in rare cells precise isolation from sample of heterogeneous cells there by enable downstream study of cells for varied applications.
Digital cell-sorting system has got several applications from malignancy genomics, basic research, clinical trials to forensic and noninvasive prenatal diagnosis. These cell sorting systems can able to analyze thousands of particles every second and isolate cells actively which have specialized properties.
