sciFLEXARRAYER SX – a compact system: all components are surrounded by one enclosure

Product Description

The sciFLEXARRAYER SX with its maintenance-free linear stage is the ultimate contactless spotter optimized for high scale batch production. It can be equipped with up to eight channels of either a sciDROP PICO or sciDROP NANO dispensing unit for liquid handling of picoliter to microliter volumes. Thus, allowing the flexibility to produce ultralow volume targets like biosensors as well as lateral flow and microfluidic targets. The SX has a self-contained, stand-alone setup that can be rolled into any kind of laboratory or production facility. In addition, it is fully compatible with clean-room setups and can be operated in a walkaway mode 24/7.


  • Optimal batch size to performance ratio results in maximum flexibility for targets e.g. wafers
  • Non-contact technology allows dispensing of droplets into small cavities
  • Most accurate positioning of dispensed lines and drops on the target
  • Consistent and highly reproducible results by the use of programmed parameters and re-spotting capability
  • Compact all-in-one design for manufacturing needs
  • User friendly through auto-drop function and walk-away system
