Featured Product Offering

SpheroONE

Cellenion’s spheroONE is an innovative single large-particle
sorter and dispenser which revolutionizes 3D cellular models handling. Using precision dispensing technology together with advanced image-based sorting capabilities, spheroONE is the perfect platform for the selection and isolation of single spheroids, organoids and tumoroids. It is a game-changer in drug screening and other applications where standard 3D models will gradually replace traditional animal models.

BioShake

Qinstrument’s BioShake product family comes in multiple different variants depending on a users mixing goals. Fundamentally, this product line offers an ultra-efficient, 2-dimensional shaking axis so that samples mix completely in a fraction of the time of competing systems. Perfect for sample preparation processes across a range of applications like flow cytometry, forensic chemistry to next generation sequencing.

sciFLEXARRAYER

The state-of-the-art sciFLEXARRAYER product line from SCIENION enables the automated, ultra-low volume dispensing of liquid samples for diagnostics, genomics, proteomics and other technical applications. Within seconds, samples can be dispensed onto almost any substrate, and the inert nature of the sciFLEXARRAYER’s glass capillaries is ideal for miniaturized chemistry applications, such as polymer and materials research.

LFDA

Lateral Flow Device Assembly (LFDA) from GINOLIS is a standard system for a fully automated assembly and packaging of rapid tests. Leveraging machine vision guided infeed of material, and built in material flexibility the LFDA provides consistent high quality assembly in a compact footprint and low barriers to start. The LFDA system from Ginolis can easily be expanded to include modules for multiple test strips, RFID tags, printing, labeling, laser marking, cap assembly, ultrasonic welding and pouching for a seamless scale up in production.

Customer Spotlights

Multiplex tests to detect pathogens and toxins in public water supply

“A key step on the preparation of the biochip is printing the microarray; here we can produce hundreds of small spots, less than a millimeter in diameter. The great advantage of this method is that we can get an answer almost immediately; in a day we can detect up to 150 different species in the water.”

Developing and upscaling high-throughput manufacture of SARS-CoV-2 testing kits
The COVID-19 pandemic created an immediate need for high volumes of affordable and effective SARS-CoV-2 testing kits. To produce enough rapid antigen test kits to help meet the global needs for testing, a high-throughput, automated production workflow was required.
