Products - Microarray Printing

Arrayit microarray manufacturing technology has been the universal standard for printing and spotting microarrays since 1997. Our patented ArrayIt® Brand Professional, 946, Stealth and Chipmaker pins and printheads are used by virtually every major research institution in the world to create diverse microarray content. We also provide complete microarray manufacturing services. Please review our extensive product list for the technology that best meets your needs. Commercial testing and diagnostic uses of our patented technology are available through straightforward licensing agreements.

Professional Series

 

Arrayit Professional Series printing pins and printheads meet the most demanding needs of microarray manufacturing. Contoured pin apertures reduce friction by 66% and tighten pin clearance to 2.5 µm for increased durability and accuracy. Professional technology is essential equipment for all professional microarray manufacturing applications including research, genomics, proteomics and diagnostics. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

946 Pins and Printheads

 

Arrayit 946 technology offers increased precision, reduced weight, and proprietary extended collar design for superior performance and usability. Our patented technology (U.S. 6,101,946), we continue to push the envelope to provide our >5,000 customers with the most advanced and innovative microarray contact printing technologies available. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

192 Technology

 

Building on our widely used patented printing technology (U.S. Patent 6,101,946) and successful implementation of more than 5,000 platforms installed worldwide, Arrayit offers 192 Pins and Printheads, which increases the speed of microarray manufacturing by a factor of four compared to 48 pin configurations, and is an excellent upgrade for high-throughput manufacturing centers including core facilities, biotechs, pharmaceutical companies, and others using the Arrayit platform. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

Stealth Pins and Printheads

 

Stealth Micro Spotting technology is the most widely used microarray product in the world, with over 2,000 installations worldwide servicing nearly 10,000 laboratories. It is protected by US Patent Number 6,101,946 and is sold license- and royalty-free for research purposes only. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

Whole Cell Microarray Printing Pins

Whole Cell Microarray Printing Pins, based on the world’s most widely used microarray manufacturing technology, offer 100 µm wide uptake channels for print whole cells, beads and other macromolecules into microarrays. Protected by US Patent Number 6,101,946 and sold license- and royalty-free for research purposes only. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

Green Microarray Pins

 

Arrayit introduces Green Microarray Printing Pins with 0.1 µl uptake channels for a 50% reduction in sample volume. Green Pins reduce the consumption of kits, reagents and plastic ware required for microarray sample preparation and accordingly reduce environmental impact. Available with extended 946 collars in stainless steel or in Pro Series RM101 alloy. Compatible with NanoPrint™ and SpotBot® 2 Microarrayers and all Pro, 946 and Stealth Pins and Printheads. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

Chipmaker Technology

 

The predecessor to Stealth Micro Spotting technology, this product has been used in the microarray industry since 1997.  Still in wide use, we continue to support this design and style of Pins and Printheads, but Stealth is recommended for new users. It is protected by US Patent Number 6,101,946 and is sold license- and royalty-free for research purposes only. Commercial testing and diagnostic applications require a license.

Micro Spotting Demo 

Click on the link to watch a demonstration of a horizontal Micro Spotting Pin deposit samples without touching the pin to the substrate. This movie demonstrates our novel sample delivery mechanism, which takes advantage of a thin layer of sample at the end of the printing pin.  Our “ink-stamp” delivery mechanism provides consistent sample delivery volumes, durability to millions of printing cycles, and sufficient sophistication to permit the manufacture of even the most delicate protein molecules.
