The heliXcyto takes care of this for you. The only step you have to do manually is to harvest your cells, wash and count them, and place them in the autosampler of the heliXcyto. The cells are then taken up automatically and will get trapped in cell traps on the heliXcyto chip. You do not need to grow the cells directly on the biochip or modify them in any way. You do not need to screen your cells for specific surface molecules for capturing, since they will be physically retained in the cell traps.
