This is a finely engineered instrument which is the result of 20+ years of experience of optimizing processes in this format. Some of the original FDA compliant spotted array biochips used this equipment. There are models: NP2 - an experimental format and the larger NP2E well suited for production scale.
This platform is capable integrating both sub nanoliter to milliliter scale dispensing. Additionally it is possible to implement multiple different cameras (ie., we sell 3 standard cameras - video microscope, target visualization camera and stroboscope) and flow rate sensors. Furthermore since it is a CNC instrument, it is also possible to put different tool heads on the machine (like pen, contact print heads). So our shop has developed a special XML formatted advanced programming interface for realizing diverse automated tasks in an organized way. This API is called multitask and details are posted.
In addition to multitask, HTSR has also developed high throughput sensitive microarray image analysis system that can be realized on the Nano-Plotter™. This technique rivals that of a conventional photomultiplier array scanner that is commonly used for biochip data collection. The laser and bandpass filters can be easily swapped for multiplexing.
