JetMosphere™ - Environmental Control Unit
In this section
Environmental control as standard
The JetMosphere™ is an environmental control system installed as standard with the entire Arrayjet range of microarrayers. By tightly controlling temperature and humidity, the Jetmosphere™ ensures a consistent printing environment, allowing production of reproducible microarrays and reliable immobilisation of biomolecules onto substrates.
Optimal binding is observed with most slide types at 20 - 25 °C and between 40 - 60% relative humidity (RH).
Eliminating the presence of airborne particles within the microarrayer makes a significant improvement to the quality of the printed arrays.
- Controls humidity using a hemetically-sealed HEPA filter to trap airborne particles, eliminating the need for chemical desiccants
- Controls temperature cooling to 5°C below ambient, with an operating range of 15-25°C
Arrayjet have developed a refrigerated, clean air environmental control system for applications that require printing at lower temperature. With an operating range of 4 °C to ambient + 5 °C, the JetMosphere Max™ is ideally-suited to printing molecules at risk of denaturing.
Printing of the world's largest human protein array (CDI Laboratories HuProt™) is reliant upon the rigid environmental control enabled by use of Arrayjet's JetMosphere Max™.
