Automated piezo driven, non-contact dispensing system of ultra-low volumes.


The sciFLEXARRAYER S3 is an automated piezo driven, non-contact dispensing system of ultra-low volumes specifically designed as an economical entry unit for academia and R&D labs.

The S3 is suitable for the production of DNA, protein and glycan arrays, cell transfection arrays, and for loading MALDI-MS targets or biosensor surfaces.

While designed for academic budgets, the sciFLEXARRAYER S3 system comes with the same proprietary sciDROP PICO dispensing technology and is built to the very same high-quality standards as the larger production units: heavy-duty design and low maintenance components.

Already being used in many laboratories and research centers around the world including the below.

Flexible tool to generate high-quality arrays

The S3 is the perfect tool for the development phase of your assay, thanks to its flexibility in terms of printable capacity you can print in microtiter plates, in glass slides, in microfluidic structures, and many more.

From early research to high throughput manufacturing

The sciFLEXARRAYER comes in four well-established versions, addressing the needs of our customers from early research to high throughput manufacturing:

Decide on your perfect configuration

The S3 is a flexible unit with up to 8 dispensing channels and many additional features available. Depending on your needs and budget, you can pick from some of our configurations on the right or decide on your own fully custom configuration.
For entry-level laboratories with a limited budget, we recommend our sciFLEXARRAYER S3 Light. For an easy start, but with full upgrade potential.
