Unique Inkjet Technology

Arrayjet microarray printers combine a patented liquid handling device, the JetSpyder™, with an industrial grade print head.  Microarrays are printed "on-the-fly" at a speed of 640 features per second: this translates into the capacity for printing an entire 384-well plate onto 100 slides in under 25 minutes.

Speed                                                                      

  • Non-contact, on-the-fly printing
  • The fastest microarray spotters available
  • The largest batch sizes

Precision

  • Precise spot volume: 100 pL - 10 nL
  • Accurate feature size: 90 – 500 μm
  • User defined spacing: 1 µm increments
  • Low intra and inter slide CVs, <5% CV

Consistency

  • Environmental control and optical QC cameras as standard
  • Automated critical parameter monitoring
  • Quality printed microarrays, every time

JetSpyder™: more flexibility, less waste

The JetSpyder™ is a patented sample loading device and integral to Arrayjet microarrayers.  Designed and manufactured in-house at Arrayjet it offers unique benefits:

  • Fast and efficient: either 12 or 32 samples are aspirated simultaneously, enabling up to 32 different samples to be printed in a single pass of the print head.
  • Economical: the JetSpyder™ transfers as little as 0.5 μL of sample to the print head.  Dead volume is minimal.
  • Sample protection: manufactured from non-hazardous materials and automatically cleaned between sample sets, the JetSpyder™ minimises the risk of sample contamination
