Automated high-throughput sorting of living cells using laser light and AI

Tests on living cell cultures are becoming increasingly important for personalized medicine, drug development and clinical research. The Aachen-based Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT and for Production Technology IPT have developed an AI-assisted high-throughput process that now makes it possible to automatically isolate specific cell types. Using a so-called LIFTOSCOPE, laboratories can localize, identify and analyze dozens of living cells per second in order to transfer them to microtiter plates with laser-induced forward transfer (LIFT).

“German researchers have developed a high-speed process that uses AI and laser technology for sorting living cells. This game-changing method, crucial for personalized medicine and drug development, automatically isolates specific cell types at remarkable speeds. The innovative tool called LIFTOSCOPE allows labs to analyze and transfer dozens of cells per second using laser-induced forward transfer method.”

Fluorierte Lipopeptide als hochwirksame Antibiotika
Multiresistente bakterielle Infektionen, gegen die keine bekannten Antibiotika mehr helfen, sind eine ernsthafte globale Bedrohung. Ein chinesisches Forschungsteam stellt in der Zeitschrift Angewandte Chemie jetzt einen Ansatz vor, auf dessen Basis sich neuartige Antibiotika gegen resistente Keime entwickeln lassen. Sie basieren auf Eiweißbausteinen mit fluorierten Lipidketten.
