RESEARCH TRIANGLE, DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA, US, December 15, 2020 / -- Cell Microsystems, a developer of advanced research tools for single cell workflows, is pleased to announce it has entered into a distribution agreement with Bucher Biotec AG. The Swiss distribution company is known to represent some of the most innovative life science research instrumentation from companies in the US, Europe and Asia.

Cell Microsystem’s lead products, the CellRaft® AIR™ System and CytoSort™ Arrays, enable complex workflows to be performed on a single consumable, including clonal propagation of single cells for CRISPR gene editing, stem cell, 3D culture, cell-based assays, and genomics research.
