iotaSciences isoPick is designed to expand handling solutions for cell biology and gene therapy applications.

iotaSciences, a spin-out from Oxford University specializing in single-cell handling solutions, announced completion of its new single-cell picker instrument on Feb. 6, 2023. The isoPick is designed to provide temperature-controlled handling of single cells during isolation, as well as picking through a workflow guided by touchscreen interfaces.

According to a company press release, the isoPick is intended for cell and gene therapy researchers, as well as the wider single-cell research community, as a means of providing verifiable isolation of single cells with high cell viability and stable single-cell outgrowth. Like the company's other instruments, it is designed to have a small footprint instrument that requires minimal maintenance.
