AcouSort's AcouWash system, which is used to wash and separate cells, has been named one of the Top 10 Innovations of 2018 by The Scientist Magazine.
The AcouWash is a benchtop instrument which can be used to concentrate cells, move them from one medium to another, or separate them based on size. The system applies acoustic forces within a microfludic channel to migrate cells into specified outlets. The advantage of using the AcouWash system, compared with centrifugation (the current standard method), is the ability to combine high cell recovery with good washing efficiency. The system also efficiently separates subpopulations of cells based on physical properties with no need for staining. The automated flow-through system is applicable for carefully managing delicate cells where traditional methods are often too rough. AcouSort is advancing this innovative technology into customized solutions for research, diagnostics and healthcare.
