The AD3400 is a workstation that is suitable for R&D through to
production levels. With its superior positional accuracy and speed,
it is foreseeable to begin biochip projects on this system and then
increase throughput using the same system. A choice of 3 nests and
mechanical shuttle allows users the ability to interchange substrates
and process biochips in a semi-automated process.
The proprietary BioJet Plus technology was developed for high speed dispensing. The technology involves (1) the coupling of a high speed micro solenoid valve with a high resolution syringe pump and (2) synchronization of the dispense system with the movements of the stage. The result is an extremely fas dispensing system, which can deliver volumes non-contact from 20 nL to 4 μL in a single dispensed drop.
BioJet Plus allows for flexible biochip development by dispensing to a glass slide, microtiter plate or membrane material.
