Label-free sorting of target cells

  • Size separation by microfluidic control and electrical separation by weak AC voltage enables continuous sorting and collection of rare cells without antibody labeling.


  • Extremely low invasiveness is achieved by using low voltage and current. Cells can be cultured directly after sorting.


  • Sorting in a closed system. All flow paths are disposable to prevent contamination of sorted cells.


AMATAR™ Unique and Innovative Filter Technology

AMATAR™ is an innovative proprietary separation technology that consist of electrical measurement, microfluidic control and image analysis.
It enables label-free and damage-free sorting of target cells from samples.


What AMATAR™ can do?


In conventional cell sorting methods, cell labeled by fluorescent-binding antibodies is recognized by a laser (optical system) for separation. However, there have been concerns about changes in cells caused by the use of cell labeling, and the equipment is large and complicated.

The AMATAR™ cell sorting technology provided by AFI consists of three technologies; electrical characterization, microfluidic control and image analysis technology. This is a unique principle not found in existing cell sorting methods, and enables label-free and damage-free sorting of target cells from samples.

This is the reason why AMATAR™ is called a "revolutionary filter technology" and is its greatest strength.
