The benefits of Nadia Go

The Nadia Go was created for researchers interested in development who do not require the scalable production features of the Nadia Instrument. The Nadia Go offers the customizable parameters of the Nadia Innovate without the necessity of purchasing a Nadia Instrument alongside it.

What is Nadia Go?

Nadia Go is a standalone, compact microfluidic tool providing a workstation for development and test of new protocols on a single Nadia chip. Cells, proteins, mRNA and a variety of other biologicals can be encapsulated with a wide range of buffers depending on sample needs.

critical parameters on the Nadia Go


Temperature control is essential in many biological applications, and requirements vary depending on experimental needs.

For example, whilst keeping a cell sample at cold temperature helps maintain the transcriptome state, the production of hydrogel beads with agarose requires heating to keep the agarose molten.

With Nadia Innovate and Nadia Go, control the temperature from 4 – 40°C at every step, from sample loading, to during the run, to post-run incubation temperature.


Adapt pre – and post run incubation steps to suit your sample type. 

Or change the duration of a run to process different sample input volumes.


To ensure an even distribution of cells and beads (if using beads) in droplets throughout a run, it is crucial to keep both in suspension as they will otherwise settle at the bottom of their respective wells, resulting in higher doublet rates.

On the Nadia Innovate and Nadia Go, stirring of cells and beads can be controlled individually, and stirring speeds can be changed dependent on cell and/or bead densities and properties.


Precise pressure control of 3 independent channels up to 1 bar to ensure flexibility and precision of droplet formation.

Adjust presures of individual inputs to achieve optimal droplet formation to suit the cell size, buffer composition and viscosity, or bead material of the experiment.

We are developing novel single cell sequencing applications that go above and beyond standard scRNA-Seq methodologies. This has all been possible because of the Nadia system.

Introducing the Nadia Innovate


Are the chips single-use consumables?

The Nadia Chip is a single-use consumables which is discarded after a run. 

How do I clean my Nadia instrument/Innovate/Go?

The Nadia product family does not have wetted parts and therefore doesn’t require cleaning. Chips are one time use and are therefore disposed of after every experiment. For re-use and cleaning of Click Chips, please refer to the Click Chip User Manual 

How do I know what products/consumables/accessories I need?

We are able to advise you and produce system quotes on products if you are unsure of what you need to run your application. Please contact us.

Will my biological work with your systems?

In most cases, yes, your biological will work with the system. Whether a biological is compatible or not is dependent on many things such as the size and fragility of the cells. Please contact our applications team at for a detailed list of cells that have been trialed in our Nadia product family.

What range of droplet sizes can you make on one chip?

On the Nadia Innovate, you can generate droplets <40 µm in diameter with Do Bio’s new 40 µm FACS Sortable Click Chip and up to 100 µm with the standard Nadia Innovate Chip.

Can you change buffers and reagents that are used in the system?

Yes, the Nadia Go is fully flexible, allowing the use of your own reagents and the development of applications.

What is the minimum exposure time on the microscope with the Nadia Innovate?

50 ms
