KTH Royal Institute of Technology Opts for Arrayjet Inkjet Microarrayer Platform

Arrayjet logoArrayjet today announced that the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has chosen its Marathon Inkjet Microarrayer for its Protein Array Technologies Group. Headed by Dr Peter Nilsson, the group, which will also serve as an Arrayjet reference site, is based in the Department of Proteomics and forms part of the Human Protein Atlas project led by Professor Mathias Uhlén. The Marathon Inkjet Microarrayer was chosen as it will provide Dr Nilsson and colleagues with the flexibility to print their own arrays, at the exceptionally high quality and throughput levels they require.

Dr Nilsson commented, "We are really looking forward to exploring the new possibilities provided by this system, as well as utilizing the high capacity of the Marathon instrument. We produce large numbers of microarrays with spotted antigens, antibodies and serum/plasma samples for proteomic profiling, and we foresee that this instrument will become a very important part of our instrumental infrastructure."

Duncan Hall, Commercial Director at Arrayjet, added, "We are delighted that such a high profile and prestigious laboratory has chosen to implement our technology." Hall continued, "Dr Nilsson's work in this area is widely known and well-published, and this partnership has great potential for both parties, particularly as we continue to develop and introduce production and processing chemistries for optimising protein microarray performance." This sale is one of a number Arrayjet have made this year, as it continues to expand its install base.

Arrayjet's Marathon is the first non-contact microarrayer to combine high quality microarray production with medium throughput proficiency. Capable of printing up to 100 slides, the Marathon platform is ideally suited to those just starting out in microarraying, as well as more experienced users making the transition from pin spotting to ink spraying technologies. For those requiring even higher throughput, Arrayjet provides the Super Marathon and Ultra Marathon, the latter of which is capable of truly industrial scale microarray production, with the capacity to print 1000 slides in a single run. For researchers who require a smaller scale, but equally high quality solution to printing custom microarrays, Arrayjet provide the Sprint system which can print 20 slides per run. On top of their infrastructure based solutions, Arrayjet is also strengthening is portfolio with microarray consumables and a dedicated microarray service business.
