Engineering Arts


Example Applications:

Non-contact piezo jetting creates unlimited possibilities for substrate and dispense reagent combinations.  Programmable droplet size and precision controls allow users to shrink the size of their assays to enhance performance and reduce costs.   Because it's non-contact, multiple reagents can be dispensed onto a single location.   Following is a list of examples of how scientists and engineers have collaborated and applied Engineering Arts technology:

Microarrays - Multiple Arrays Per Slide or Microplate:

  • Ideal for Focused MicroArray Studies
  • Lowest Cost Per Array
  • Increases Array Batch Size
  • Rainmaker Inline On-The-Fly Dispense Technology Ideal for the Most Efficient and High Quality Manufacting of these Devices

Nanoprobe Lectin Arrays

The Active Pipette is used to print lectin arrays but instead of flooding the glycoprotein probe on the lectin array surface, as in conventional microarray screening, the Active Pipette is used to dispense nanoliters of fluorescently labeled glycoprotein probe over the lectin spots on the array.
