Tell us about the company and why you are attending Analytica 2018?
Cytosurge AG manufactures the unique and patented FluidFM technology. We are attending Analytica in order to meet new potential customers, discuss their current and future needs, and to explain what FluidFM is, and how it help researchers to go beyond current technology limitations.
We are equally looking to discuss opportunities with new distribution partners.
What products are you highlighting at analytica 2018?
The ground-breaking FluidFM BOT for Injection and the FluidFM nanosyringe will presented for the first time at Analytica. This system is ideal for researchers looking to inject nanoparticles, proteins, plasmids or CRISPR-Cas complexes into ~10 micron sized cells such iPS or other difficult to transfer cells.

What makes this product different from anything else on the market?
Conventional microinjection has its limits: these include limited cell viability, time-consuming experiments and difficulties in injecting into “small” adherent cells.
With FluidFM, compounds can be repeatedly injected into the same cell in a cell-context preserving and non- destructive manner, with more than 95% of the injected cells surviving.
The injected cells can also be cultivated and analyzed, and their evolution captured over time with the integrated time-lapse and video features.
Only 15 minutes are needed to prepare the cells, the well-plates and the nanosyringes before being able to perform the first series of injections.
The FluidFM nanosyringe is capable of successfully injecting adherent cells of around 10 μm in size, such as iPS cells. And repeatedly, into the same living cell.
