New Products: Scienion's SciFlexarrayer S1

Premium

Scienion this week introduced a new version of its SciFlexarrayer S1. The upgraded small compact non-contact piezo dispensing instrument provides "increased throughput" and "higher capacity," compared to the previous S1, according to the firm.

CEO Holger Eickhoff said in a statement that the deck space of the new S1 model has quadrupled, and can host up to five microplates that can be used as either source or destination locations during the deposition process. The system can now be equipped with multiple dispensers.

The SciFlexarrayer was developed for molecular biology research labs and is capable of non-contact arraying of DNA and proteins, producing cell transfection arrays, loading biosensors, and preparing MALDI targets, the company said.
