sciDROP NANO - high precision dispensing of nano- to microliters

The heart of the new sciDROP NANO technology is an electromagnetic micro valve with an extremely fast response time, creating a jet of controlled dispensed volume and accurate positioning.

Thanks to its versatile dispensing capabilities, sciDROP NANO is geared towards applications:

  • where volumes to be dispensed range between 25nL to 1μL per drop and
  • where lines have to be precisely deposited onto nitrocellulose sheets, lateral flow membranes, dipsticks or other materials.

sciDROP NANO can be implemented in all of our sciFLEXARRAYERs, from R&D to manufacturing environments.

In combination with sciDROP PICO, the total volume range between 10 pL and 100 μL is covered by a single sciFLEXARRAYER instrument.
