Spotting of DNA Microarray

Microarray solutions

With roots tracing back to the pioneering days of the Human Genome Project, our team brings unparalleled expertise in microarray technology. Since that time, we have continuously enhanced our proprietary dispense technology, setting the industry standard for precision, high throughput, and flexibility. However, our commitment extends far beyond technological innovation. Our cross-functional team of scientists and engineers is dedicated to partnering with you to expedite your development journey and deliver microarrays of the highest quality.

Our unique microarray printing technology

Over two decades ago, we pioneered the first generation microarray printer in response to the demands of the Human Genome Project, filling a crucial gap in available technology. Since then, we've relentlessly refined and expanded this platform, transforming it into a truly unparalleled solution.

Today, our advanced microarray printing technology stands out for its ability to deliver precision, high throughput, and flexibility, setting a new standard in microarray printing.

We sell microarrays, not printers

Repeatable manufacture of high-quality microarrays is about much more than just the printing technology. It requires control of the environment, precise preparation of reagents and substrate surfaces, optimization of printing parameters, thorough post-processing and stringent quality control. With our exclusive dispensing technology and expertise, we offer a unique proposition: entrust us with your microarray manufacturing needs. As pioneers in the field, we exclusively offer contract development and manufacturing services, underscoring our commitment to not merely providing the right tool for the job, but to finish the job for you.


No matter your microarray application, we've likely encountered something similar and can assist you on your journey. With our experience and expertise, we will help guide you to success.
