The superposition of acoustic pressure waves is used to eject microdrops of fluid from the nozzle of the dispensing cartridge. The technology dispenses microdrops in the range of 5 to 120pl, with a repeatability of +/- 1% and at a rate of up to 48,000 microdrops per second.
Polypico systems feature our patented technology which uses disposable polymer dispensing cartridges, rather than traditional glass-based nozzles. This unique disposable cartridge technology creates many advantages for users, including:
Drop-on-demand, non-contact fluid dispensing, with typical variation in drop-to-drop volume less than 2%. A range of systems with precision of up to +/- 6um robotic accuracy.
Easy to set-up. Use after a 1-hour training session. Intuitive software. Software and hardware similar throughout our range, so easy to scale-up. Low maintenance.
We have clients dispensing fluids with up to 90cPs at room temperature. Higher viscosity fluids can be dispensed using our heated dispensing head variant (e.g. 100% glycerol, 800cPs). In the event of inadvertently clogging a cartridge, simply discard the dispensing cartridge and use a new one.
Dispense an extremely wide range of fluid classes including: aqueous solutions, organic/inorganic reagents and suspensions; DMSO/ethanol-based solutions; DNA/RNA/PNA/mRNA; stem cells and other living cells; adhesives such as cyanoacrylate; radioisotopes; conductive carbon and silver inks; nano-materials/carbon nano-tubes; proteins/anti-bodies; microcrystals; bacteria; viruses; saliva, and many more.
Our technology is now enabling scientists and engineers, from a wide range of disciplines, to drive innovation in research and manufacturing. Enjoy more advanced, easier, faster dispensing, while lowering operational costs, and gain access to a team who can help you push the boundaries of your microdispensing application.
A technology that delivers an unprecedented level of speed, precision, control and adaptability.
Cost effective technology, low-cost disposable cartridges, work faster, no cleaning downtime, fast fluid switchovers and lower operational costs.
