Scienion Launches sciFLEXARRAYER S3 for Ultra-low Volume Liquid Handling
Product News Apr 10, 2007
Scienion AG with its sciFLEXARRAYER S3 has launched another model of its prize winning dispensing systems for ultra-low volume liquid handling.
The piezo-driven system for non-contact dispensing was particularly developed as an economical entry for academic and R&D labs.
Dr. Holger Eickhoff, CEO of Scienion AG, explains: “With the sciFLEXARRAYER S3 we wanted to make our benchmark technology affordable for academic budgets. This new S3 model is based on the same drop-on-demand technology as the higher throughput systems S5 and S11 offering all proven advantages of the sciFLEXARRAYER line.“
The sciFLEXARRAYER S3 is specifically designed as a tool for a variety of applications in genome and proteome research including non-contact arraying of DNA and proteins, biosensor loading, the production of cell transfection arrays and the preparation of MALDI targets.
The system is engineered robustly to handle the delicate substrates in volumes from 100 picoliters up to several microliters. A user-friendly software allows for a flexible and convenient design of chip layout and for programming of individual spotting routines by users new to microarraying.
