Nano PlotterTM: DNA- and Protein Arrays, Cell Pipetting, Reverse Phase Arrays, Assays, Biosensors, MALDI-targets, ...

The Nano-PlotterTM family is ideal to generate high-quality spots by non-contact microdispensing of sub-nanoliter volumes. The versatile “drop on demand” piezo technology allows the placement of very small drops onto various surfaces, but also the mixing of samples into pre-filled cavities to run nano-assays. The compact instruments are your ideal companion for the development and production of biochips and for many other liquid handling tasks

Key Benefits

  • Micromachined piezoelectric micropipettes with unrivalled performance
  • Small footprint
  • Quiet yet quick operation
  • Excellent spot quality
  • No contact between pipette and target surface, i.e., no scratching
  • Variation of spot volumes/sizes by changing the drop count (from ~ 100 picoliters)
  • High reproducibility and low CV between spots
  • Arbitrary spot patterns with arbitrary printhead configurations
  • Almost unlimited number of spots with a single pipette load
  • Can handle many different sample types
  • Less impact on sensitive samples (like protein solutions)
  • Standard liquid handling possible using “passive” tips
  • Modular design for easy after-sales upgrades
