Preventing evaporation from microplates increases the number of times a source microplate can be used
for microarraying, therefore increasing the number of microarrays that can be printed from it. Using a microplate which has partially dried out also reduces the quality of microarrays produced as evaporation between wells is known to be inconsistent; evaporation rates from outer wells are higher than from wells towards the centre of the plate.
Arrayjet has optimised methods of preventing sample evaporation during print runs. The JetGuard™ forms a seal in every single well of a 384 microplate. Samples are protected against airborne contaminants and sample plates can be reused to produce reliable microarrayers.
JetGuard Probe Protector-Flexible cover for 384 Microplates
Minimise waste and protect samples with JetGuard Probe Protector™, a specifically-designed cover for JetStar microplates™. The JetGuard controls humidity and significantly reduces sample evaporation during longer print runs.
Both 12- and 32-sample JetSpyder™ are compatible with the JetStar Probe Protector™, and when used together, the combination ensures samples do not become cross-contamin…
JetStar™ Microarray-Specific 384-well Armadillo Microplate
Arrayjet specifically recommend JetStar™ 384-well microplates that are designed to minimise sample waste and to seamlessly fit with a JetGuard™ Probe Protector.
Features of the Arrayjet 384-well plate:
• Tall “chimney well” design enables JetSpyder™ to reach the bottom of each well, minimising sample waste
• Working well volume: 40 µL
• Cut corner: well A24
