Our Technology

The Cyto technology portfolio supports life science research by providing new capabilities to rapidly enrich, separate, and recover live cells. Our technology is unique in its ability to recover populations of specific cells without impacting the cells, enabling their maintenance and visibility for further analysis and use in biomedical research.

Introducing the CytoR1 Platform

Your Cells, Sorted. Label-Free. Gentle. Viable.

The CtyoR1TM Platform is a fully integrated, software controlled, benchtop solution

for precision cell recovery that allows for even the rarest cell capture.

Electronics Generator - Power Amplifier

The Cyto designed electronics generator is a power amplifier capable of producing low (< 100 kHz) and high (> 1 MHz) frequency sinusoidal waveforms providing high voltage AC power for electronics applications. Using USB driven software, the generator can be stimulated to a variety of combination frequency and voltage parameters for use in numerous applications. Additional specifications can be found in the table below.


The Cyto designed chip interfacing system provides a plug and play system for use with a variety of cell sorting and microfluidic devices. These microscale devices, or chips, can be used in a variety of applications needing both fluidic and electronic stimulations. In conjunction with a power amplifier and software, the interfacing system can safely and accurately send a wide variety of frequency and voltage parameters to your microdevices. Additionally, the system is designed to interface on most, standard, inverted microscopes to visualize your experiments. Customizations and alterations are possible to meet your application needs.


The CytoBuffer reagent is an ultra-low conductivity (<100 µS/cm) buffer for use in electrokinetics, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and electrorotation applications. Our custom formulation adequately lowers sample conductivity for electromanipulation while sustaining high cell viability and metabolism for hours of experimental time.
