Automated Nano-point Delivery for single cell : SU10

Single-cell targeting with direct delivery into nucleus or cytoplasm

  • Select cells for delivery while observing under a microscope and deliver substances to into nucleus or cytoplasm of targeted cells.
  • Easy Control of XY-position and automatic control of delivery Z-position in software.


FITC-labelled dextran solution (molecular weight 70,000) was delivered into HeLa cells.

Minimal damage to cells

  • 纳米木板是一种玻璃移液器,其最小尖端外径为几十纳米,最大程度地减少对细胞的损害。
  • Delivery with high cell viability enables live single-cell analysis.

Automated, high speed, and high success rate

  • The SU10 uses automated cell surface detection, insertion, and delivery to the cell. The process takes approximately 10 seconds with a 90% success rate. (Experiment by Yokogawa)
  • 操作s that were previously performed manually by experienced researchers are much easier with SU10.

SU10 nano delivery process


  • Cell line (HeLa, HEK293, CHO, MDCK, HepG2, etc.)
  • 原代细胞培养(神经元,肝细胞等)
  • 干细胞系(IPS细胞,ES细胞等)
  • Immune cell lines (T cell, Ba/F3 cell, etc.)
  • Plant cell with cell wall

Examples of materials that can be injected

  • CRISPR-Cas9 (Cas9 RNP)
  • Protein (antibody, GFP, etc.)
  • Nucleic acid (single-stranded DNA, etc.)
  • Fluorescent reagent


SU10 application



A1.The SU10 lowers the damage to a cell with the nanopipette because its tip size is less than 1/10 of a tip used for microinjection.
Automatic detection of cell surface enables a high success rate of insertion to the intended depth of a cell.
The delivery operation uses an electrical method rather than pneumatic or hydraulic pressure.

Q2. What t is the difference from traditional transfection methods (e.g. transfection reagents, electroporation)?

A2.The SU10 can deliver materials into the selected cells.
The SU10 enables a direct delivery of reagents into cytoplasm or nucleus.

Q3. What is the difference from electroporation?

A3.In addition to the above-mentioned “difference from traditional transfection methods”, due to automated cell surface detection, the suspension of cells is not required during injection.

Q4. What is the max volume of deliver into the cell?

A4.It is estimated to be tens of femtoliter (fL) per second (1fL=1x10-15L).
The volume can be changed by software settings.

Q5. Is the nanopipette disposable?

A5.Yes, but one nanopipette can deliver to 50 cells or more*.
