Supporting R&D to large batch manufacturing
Arrayjet has developed a dual-camera optical QC system, available now on the Marathon series of microarray printers.
The Iris™ consists of twin cameras mounted on either side of the print head. Each camera captures images within 300 ms of sample deposition, moving across the printed slides in conjunction with the print head.
Automated QC reports
Integration of the Iris™ camera with gives Marathon users access to a real-time QC system for reliable high-throughput batch manufacturing.
As the images from Iris™ are captured, the intuitive Command Centre Pro software uses AI to analyse each slide. The software alerts users of any defects, and the software categorises the problem type, such as a missing spot, artefact, merging spots, satellites present or misalignment. ensuring complete traceability of manufacturing runs.
In the incidence of missing spots, the software evaluates the cause and automatically reprints the sample. Users benefit from 24/7 walkaway automation, and reliable arrays every time.
A global report is automatically generated after the print run, saving significant time on scanning slides.
Advanced environmental control and filtering
Arrayjet have developed a refrigerated unit that allows customers to print at ultra low temperatures without the need for cooling decks. With an operating range of 4 °C to ambient + 5 °C, the JetMosphere Max™ is ideally suited to printing proteins, and other molecules at risk of denaturing.
Additional de/humidification and an industrial air filtering system make the JetMosphere Max™ an ideal upgrade for customers who want to conserve sample whilst protecting slides from airborne particulates.
With the capability of producing the largest batch sizes on the market, the Ultra Marathon I and II are ideally-suited to commercial array manufacture. At unparalleled speeds, Ultra Marathon I and II meet the production requirements of most array formats, including slides (1000 per batch), microplates (200 per batch) and biosensors.
Multi-functional capabilities and tight environmental control make the Ultra Marathon range suitable for varied high-throughput applications.
Minimal sample waste
Biological samples are valuable. Arrayjet's patented liquid handling device minimises waste and has the capacity to print up to 32 different samples from a single aspiration of as little as 0.5 µL. The 32-sample JetSpyder™ is available as an additional upgrade on each of the Marathon range of microarray printers.
