Webinars

Xtalks & Samplix webinar : Enzyme Engineering Advancements with Xdrop and Flow Cytometry

Discover how Xdrop and flow cytometry enhance the efficiency of enzyme engineering by boosting throughput for fluorescence-based screening.

In this webinar, Volkan Besirlioglu (Samplix) talked about: 

  • The limitation of conventional enzyme screening and the need for ultra high-throughput screening in enzyme engineering
  • Advancements in enzyme variant selection and analysis with Samplix’s Xdrop technology
  • Improving enzyme engineering efficiency by increasing the throughput of fluorescence-based screening with Xdrop

Xdrop double-emulsion droplet production

See how straightforward it is to encapsulate your sample (e.g., cells or DNA fragments) in double-emulsion (DE) droplets. In the video, an Xdrop DE50 Cartridge is loaded with natural killer cells and lymphoblasts, which are then encapsulated for a cell-killing assay in single-cell format. Droplets will contain a natural killer cell, a lymphoblast, or both cell types; some will be empty. The droplets with a single cell or no cells act as controls.

Xdrop Sort double-emulsion droplet sorting

See how straightforward it is to sort your sample (e.g., microbial cells or DNA fragments) when it is encapsulated in double-emulsion (DE) droplets. Pipette the droplets and media into the Xdrop DE20 Sort Cartridge and start your run on Xdrop Sort. In the video, an Xdrop DE20 Sort Cartridge is loaded with droplets containing DNA fragments. Sorting occurs based on fluorescence. You can adjust the detection threshold to ensure you capture all of your precious sample.
