CyteFinder® & CytePicker®

Single cell detection and retrieval

Every cell – imaged, analyzed, discovered


CyteFinder is a small, powerful system that enables high-throughput rare cell detection and analysis.

Key features of the CyteFinder system include:

  • Provides precise visual confirmation of target cells with over 400 analytical parameters
  • Multi-channel detection with up to 6 channels allows use of custom panels
  • Slide scan time of less than 12 minutes in standard operation


Integrated with the CyteFinder instrument, the CytePicker module enables isolation and downstream analysis of individual, rare cells.

Key features of the CytePicker module include:

  • Retrieves single cells with little or no contamination from other cells
  • Two-click system calibration and precise flow control enable repeated retrieval and deposit of rare cells of interest
  • Allows visual confirmation of retrieved cells to ensure accuracy
