New Products: Arrayjet's Marathon Classic Microarrayer

Premium

Arrayjet has launched a new instrument for manufacturing microarrays.

Edinburgh, UK-based Arrayjet bills the Marathon Classic as an "entry level" microarrayer, with a price of £99,500 ($162,640). The instrument has an input from up to six-well plates and an output capacity of 100 slides, full environmental control, and printing speeds up to "50 times faster than other technologies."

Claire Jenkins, commercial director at Arrayjet, said in a statement that the Marathon Classic's price point of below £100,000 is "highly attractive" and should "widen the microarray market." In addition to the Classic, the company said it offers three other arrayers and maintains clients in 17 countries.
