Scienion presents novel sciFLEXARRAYER S100 high throughput platform for the production of biochips at Biotechnica

With its sciFLEXARRAYER S100 Scienion AG introduces a novel high throughput array and biosensor production instrument. The new S100 meets the high throughput production requirements of common bioarray formats like microtiter plates, slides, wafers and of biosensors. The system will be presented at Biotechnica, October 9-11, 2007 in Hanover

Dortmund and Berlin, Germany, October 2, 2007: Dr. Holger Eickhoff, CEO of Scienion AG, explains: “Our high throughput device sciFLEXARRAYER S100 combines highest precision in ultra-low volume liquid handling with optimal flexibility. Users are able to process individually favored array formats and the system is scalable for any needed production volumes.” The new S100 model offers all proven advantages of the drop-on-demand technology used in the sciFLEXARRAYER product line systems allowing for contact-free micro drop dispensing of liquid volumes in the picoliter to microliter range. Compared to the existing sciFLEXARRAYER products, the substrate carriers are moved to the dispense heads mounted on the S100 portals via a conveyor. The modular design enables customized solutions. The process automation of the walk-away system allows for unattended production.

The sciFLEXARRAYER S100 will be presented at Biotechnica, October 9-11, in Hanover, Germany, at the Scienion booth # C79 in hall 9.

About Scienion AG
SCIENION AG is a life science company well positioned in the markets of ultra low volume liquid handling systems and microarray technologies. We provide our customers with an integrated product portfolio facilitating and improving multiparallel bioanalytics, high throughput screening and high throughput production of microarrays in the genomics and proteomics fields – from early research to manufacturing. Our approach is to provide our customers in pharmaceutical, biotech, diagnostic and reagents companies as well as in academic research institutions with high quality products serving as cost- and time-saving tools for their applications.
Based on Scienion’s expertise and proprietary platform technologies our product portfolio comprises hardware, consumables and services.
Scienion’s leading product is the sciFLEXARRAYER dispensing system, available in a product line of three size versions S3, S5 and S11. The piezo-electrically driven dispenser allows the aspiration of ultra low liquid volumes from different reservoirs and non-contact micro drop delivery in the picoliter to microliter range onto a variety of carriers. Presently Scienion is developing innovative integrated storage and dispensing devices. sciSWIFTs are based on Scienion’s proprietary Sterile Washfree Identifyable Fluid Technology. Disposable storage and dispensing nozzles eliminate the risk of contamination and as aspire and wash steps are no longer necessary, the spotting process is greatly accelerated.
Founded in 2000 in Berlin as a spin-off of the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics, the company today operates from two sites, Dortmund and Berlin.
