Microarrayer Wash, Sonicate and Dry

NanoPrint Microarray Printer Wash, Sonicate, Dry, Print 48 spot/sec!

The microarrays we make are essentially biological computer micro processors. In our SNP genotyping method, we use this spotting device to put tens of thousands of DNA tests on a single microscope size piece of glass. The tests cannot mix with each other, so the cleaning technology of the printing device must be extremely robust. Here we show, washing, sonicating and drying of our microarray printing device, US Patent 6,101,946, SNP genotyping patent 6,913,879.
