LevitasBio is advancing science and human health by providing researchers with a new and powerful method of cellular analysis - magnetic levitation. Their novel single-cell sequencing technology, LeviCell, uses magnetic levitation to separate individual cells according to type or state based on the different levitation heights caused by the unique physical properties. The LeviCell™ delivers simple, label-free cell separation in a fast, reliable and gentle workflow to prepare your samples for better results.
Introducing the World’s First Label-Free Cell Separation Technology to the Nordics
Magnetic levitation is the first truly novel approach to cellular analysis in 30 years. During the last three decades the American experts at LevitasBio have been pushing the boundaries in cellular analysis. With their innovative LeviCell Platform, they introduced a new cell separation method using cellular levitation with a low pressure to allow a complete separation without touching and labeling. All in which can be done in only 3 steps in less than 20 minutes.
Single-cell analysis technology has played an instrumental role in facilitating cellular biology development. However, prevalent single-cell sample preparation methods and technologies are inclined to not only damage cells but have low capture efficiency and generally result in low cell viability. This causes both inaccuracy in the population representation of the biological sample and cells to be insufficient to complete the experiment. With The LeviCell™ platform from LevitasBio, you are ensured a gentle, cell damage-minimizing, and technological platform to reach the full potential of single-cell analysis.
The LeviCell™ platform is a Next-Generation Sample Enrichment Technology for label-free cell separation. It is designed to ensure fast, effective, and gentle enrichment of cells and nuclei from even the most complex samples.
How it works
A magnetic field is generated and drives levitation based on the physical properties of the cells.
Once the population of living cells levitates higher than the dead cells or debris, the LeviCell equipment allows efficient separation of cells followed by their collection. The low pressure used by LeviCell results in a gentle separation that enables maximum cell viability to be achieved, thus allowing the integrity of the cell population to be preserved for subsequent biological processes such as single cell analysis and sequencing.
The workflow is based on 3 fundamental steps: load, levitate, collect. These minimize the risk of any contamination and damage that may occur when doing multiple handling or washing-procedures, and therefore can maximize the enrichment for each cell type.
