New Products: Roche NimbleGen's SlideWasher12 Array Processing System

Premium

Roche NimbleGen last week launched its SlideWasher12 Array Processing System. The automated instrument provides washing and removal of wash solution prior to scanning NimbleGen microarrays.

According to the firm, the system can wash and dry up to a dozen slides in 10 minutes. It relies on controlled agitation to reduce variability of manual procedures with customizable wash parameters, and a short duration drying step to reduce ozone degradation of dyes.
