Abstract: Miniaturized biosensor and biochip substrates for diagnostic, monitoring, toxicity screening and others can be diverse. Landing areas, or complete surfaces, have to be loaded with biological molecules and the active substrates can vary from silicone and glass to polymers and metals. Non-contact delivery of biomolecules onto these substrates keeps the surface coatings intact and is compatible with diverse detection fields. sciFLEXARRAYER technology offers the possibility to dispense volumes as low as 100 picoliters very accurately. Additionally user-friendly software tools for the detection of micro-structures allow loading of intricate patterns on biosensors with an unsurpassed high absolute accuracy.

A variety of biological substances have been dispensed onto different biosensors using a sciFLEXARRAYER with special hard- and software features offering distinct advantages for highly accurate loading of biosensors:
• sciDROPVOLUME software module for precise online measurement of droplet volumes
• Microscope with CCD camera in combination with software modules for pre-spotting detection & analysis of microstructures and quality control
• Outstanding drop stability from symmetric or asymmetric surface coatings to adjust wettability of nozzle surface for specific samples

The sciFLEXARRYAER technology platform for seamless use from R&D to production, which delivers ultra-low volumes very accurately onto any surface, enables short development times. The user-friendly integration of dedicated hard- and software tools offers reproducibly high production quality and reliable in-process quality control.
Summary: Using precise dispensing system, sciFLEXARRYAER enables loading of biosensors effectively, pL~uL of materials can be loaded onto the substrates with highly precise positioning. Low volumes of reagent decrease production costs per test significantly. Versatile biological materials and substrates can be easily applied. In addition, due to the smaller feature size of the analytes, introducing multiple analytes onto the same test area can be achieved.Report abuse »
