Telechem SpotBot 2 Personal Microarrayer
The ArrayIt® desktop microarray uses advanced micro-robotics to ensure precision, compactness and affordability. The SpotBot® 2 Personal Microarrayer will print 384 samples onto 14 substrates in duplicate in 2 hours using four patented 946 Micro Spotting Pins. SpotBot® 2 systems are perfect complements to microarray core facilities, ideal for innovative research and diagnostics, and essential instruments for all microarray laboratories.

Unique Features of the SpotBot® 2
- Only truly portable microarrayer available at 1.0 cubic foot in size.
- Installation time of less than 60 minutes.
- Only system that uses micro-robotics for motion control.
- “Zero” thermal emission, ultra-low energy consumption, and quiet operation.
- Uses a forced air stream for pin drying, providing "zero" sample carry-over.
- Super fast humidity control of 5% per minute and ±1 % at steady state.
- Ultra-low wash buffer consumption of <1.0 liter per 8 hours of operation.
- Ultra-low air turbulence minimizes sample evaporation during printing.
- Ultra-low vibration improves printing quality and eliminates disruption of analytical balances, microscopes, scanners and other sensitive equipment.
We offer a May 2007 Telechem SpotBot® 2 SpotBot 2 Personal Microarrayer. It was serviced under warranty less than a year ago with a complete system rebuild by the manufacturer (including the xyz arm and the PCB boards). Since then it has been rarely used. The system is in excellent condition and comes complete and ready to operate including current calibration files and firmware upgrades supplied by manufacturer.
