Print 2D patterns at ultra-high speed, with no moving parts

State-of-the-art electro-steering system high speed print system for small targets

The revolutionary electro-steering technology from Polypico controls the trajectory of micro-drops in free space. The system can print 2D patterns at speeds which can be orders of magnitude faster than traditional printers. Traditional printers, using robotic platforms, spend more time moving the printhead over the target rather than printing. The electro-steering system has been designed especially for small targets which need high positional placement accuracy, e.g.: TEM grids; micro-needle arrays; sensor chips; etc. Customisation is possible for larger footprint targets.

Features & Benefits
Patented disposable dispensing cartridge technology
No cross-contamination by design, change fluids in a matter of minutes, no wastage of precious fluids, with a nozzle anti-clogging feature.
Ultra-low volume dispensing
Single microdrop volumes can be programmed to be any volume in the range of 5pl to 120pl (contingent on well-engineered fluids).
Ultra-high speed 2D printing
Print 2D patterns at high speed with high placement accuracy and no moving parts. Print speeds dependent on target pattern complexity and required volume per deposition. For example, less than 4 seconds to print 200 discrete locations on a 10mm square target, with 2nl deposited per location.
Custom configurations possible to suite your specific application requirements.
Ongoing software upgrades
Keep up to date with the latest features and capabilities. (Optional).
1-year & extended warranties
Includes a 1-year parts and labour, return to factory warranty. Option to extend the warranty for 3 to 5-years also available.
