SCIENION AG, a German biotechnology company created in 2001, is the leading manufacturer of robust, high performance dispensing automation for applications requiring precise deposition of biological content in ultra-low volumes. Our non-contact technology is ideally suited for loading of oligonucleotides, proteins, antibodies, and glycans onto diagnostics devices. Enabled by very flexible software, our systems are used from early R&D activities, all the way through to manufacturing millions of devices per year. Easy scale up is facilitated by the fact that the same core technologies are engineered into all of our systems.
We recently introduced a new line of readers, optimized for quantitative array reading on both slides and microtiter plates. Available in colorimetric, fluorescence, and shortly chemi-luminescence, these readers are designed with the goal to surpass all pre-existing commercial readers and become the industry standard for assay kits in central labs.
Additionally, through our subsidiary Cellenion, we have developed new technology enabling the dispensing of single-cells. The ability to manipulate single-cells has long been a challenge for the scientific community due to their micrometric size and delicate nature. We have developed and patented a breakthrough technology called CellenONE allowing high throughput isolation and dispensing of single cells onto a wide range of substrates.
We are also expanding our services to offer a spectrum of full solutions. Through our Alliance with Applied Microarrays, one of the first solutions we are offering involves the full manufacturing process including wafer prep, surface functionalization, dicing, content spotting, QC, cartridge assembly, functional QC, and packaging.
Introducing sciPOLY3D, a simple way to immobilize oligos and proteins onto unfunctionalized surfaces. Simply mix oligo or protein containing buffer with sciPOLY3D, and spot the very stable solution over extended run times. When done, perform a simple UV curing step; no classical blocking step is needed.
The company operates from sites in Germany and in the United States.
