sciFLEXARRAYER: Ultra-low volume precision dispensing systems

The sciFLEXARRAYER product line represents the perfect tool for automated ultra-low volume liquid handling of various types of samples (i.e. biological, organic, nanoparticle and dyes) in diagnostics, genomics, proteomics and technical applications. In addition, due to the inert nature of the glass capillaries, it is an ideal tool for miniaturized chemistry applications, such as in polymer and materials research. Within seconds, liquid volumes between 10 picoliters and 100 microliters can be dispensed onto almost any target substrate.

We currently offer four models of sciFLEXARRAYERs, from entry-level to high-throughput manufacturing. As the same core technology is used in all our models, our sciFLEXARRAYER technology enables easy scale-up to help you accelerate your ideas from early research to production.

sciFLEXARRAYER S3
An economical entry unit for academia and R&D labs suitable for the production of DNA, protein and glycan arrays, cell transfection arrays, and for loading MALDI-MS targets or biosensor surfaces.

sciFLEXARRAYER S12
Compact all-in-one design and sliding door to reduce particle contamination and turbulence. The sciFLEXARRAYER S12 is designed and optimized for medium scale batch production, especially for precise 12" wafer loading.

sciFLEXARRAYER SX
For high-throughput production of multiplex tests for diagnostics and life science. Thanks to its precise axis system and increased dispensed area, the SX delivers outstanding reproducibility between batches, enabling a printing capacity of 140 slides or 27 MTPs per batch.

sciFLEXARRAYER S100
The S100 is the ultimate in-line high-throughput production system from SCIENION. Each S100 is tailored to the customer's application, and as a modular system, additional portals can be added to meet the required production volumes. The S100 is suitable for the high-throughput production requirements of most bioarray formats such as microplates, slides, wafers and a variety of biosensors.

cellenONE Single Cell Isolation & Nanoliter Dispenser

cellenONE, an automated single cell dispensing system based on patented piezo-acoustic technology, allows precise cell deposition on a wide range of microplates (96, 384, 1536) and microwell substrates. 

Most dispensing and microfluidic technologies follow Poisson distribution, which leads to multiple cells per position and low efficiency. cellenONE uses software-integrated visual feedback to ensure only single cells are deposited in every position.

cellenONE only dispenses drops containing single cells to your preferred substrate. All remaining drops will be dispensed into a recovery tube, resulting in no sample wastage. Additionally, the cellenONE isolates cells utilizing an acoustic technology which has been shown to be gentler than the high stress of FACS and results in excellent cell viability.

cellenONE® is a low volume, high viability and accuracy single cells isolation technology for both sequencing and cell line development applications.
