Premium

BioDot recently introduced its BioJet Elite dispensing technology.

Irvine, Calif.-based BioDot said that BioJet Elite relies on a high resolution syringe pump coupled to a microsolenoid valve and triple axis motion to enable quantitative drop dispensing on the fly. The BioJet elite technology also provides a dynamic dispense range from 1.3 nanoliters to 2 microliters in a single drop, the firm said.

According to BioDot, BioJet Elite can be used to produce microarrays, PCR assays, autoimmunity assays, glucose sensors, microfluidic devices, and other types of in vitro diagnostic devices.
