Arrayjet: Mercury Microarray Printers

Arrayjet has launched the Mercury line of microarray printers. It comprises five different instruments, capable of ultra-low-volume liquid dispensing, that have output capacities between 25 and 1,000 slides. The new printers use Arrayjet's patented, non-contact inkjet technology for printing multiplex array-based assays onto slides, point-of-care devices, biochips, and microplates. Compared to their predecessors, they are more compact; easier to set up, use, and maintain; and incorporate a new printhead range for faster and more accurate printing of a range of volumes and spot sizes.
