Latest hybrid spotting technology

instrumentSIX series

The instrumentSIX is a flexible system with Ultrasonic, Wash and Dry station with easy cleaning of the micro-dispensers. The instrument can be equipped with a flexible amount of target glass- or plastic-slides, MTP holders and two coolable sources. The head camera performs inline quality control for finding missed spots, which are respotted with the second single pin head in order to achieve the highest microarray quality.

M2-Automation’s PinDMD technology is made for low volume protein and DNA microarray printing on different coolable targets under controlled conditions (Climate Control system for controlling temperature, humidity and DEW point). The technology combines two different micro-dispensers in one instrument:

  • Pin Driven Micro-Dispenser (PinDMD) for pico- to low nanolitre applications, with Dual Head and inline QC for an optimal microarray result
  • Piezo Driven Micro-Dispenser (PDMD) for pico- to low nanolitre applications

Key Features

  • High throughput applications
  • High production capacity
  • Automated target and microarray imaging
  • Multi-pin head for fast microarray printing
  • Inline QC for the highest microarray quality
  • Flexible deck configuration
  • Different instrument sizes


The perfect combination of a robust contact Pin spotter with non-contact Piezo dispensing technology, all within one system, for ultimate microarray handling
