Development Highlights

  • 2020DHUM The in-house designed dehumidifier DHUM is an electrical appliance which reduces the level of humidity in the instrument housing by extracting water from the air. The dehumidifier will keep the relative humidity below 50% under any room conditions.
  • 2019THEO The in-house developed and designed thermo-generator THEO is a great alternative to commercial available generators. THEO is silent, space-saving and cost-effective. Temperature range: +10 °C up to +40 °C.
  • 2019iONE 1200 Linear motor axis tuning hand in hand with the supplier improved positioning and performance. Optimization result: 8 positions per second.
  • 2019GmbH Rebranding from M2-Automation Martin Müller to M2-Automation GmbH.
  • 2019Recovery & Fiducial Recognition Nobody is perfect but we continuously strive for perfection. Our re-engineered recovery function and new fiducial recognition function allows you to fully automatically check for missing spots and creates a recovery run that spots these missing features. Also your array is always positioned well because of detection and compensation of slight target/substrate changes/misalignments.

What Our Clients Say

M2-automation dispensing technology offer high-precision, speed and good reproducibility for glycan and glycopeptide microarray spotting. This is critical for studies of glycan-protein interactions or for mapping of antibodies recognizing glycan or glycopeptide specific binding epitopes. Besides that the M2/M24You offer an outstanding service support team.

Assoc. Prof. Ulrika Westerlind: Umea University, Sweden

The quality, flexibility, wide volume range and ease of software use was our main priority to choose M2-AutomationDispensing Technology. The outstanding application and after sales support show the attitude of theM2/M24You team commitment. After experiencing other dispensing technologies, M2/M24You technology is the right choice for our research work.

Mr. Dr. Peter Miethe: CEO fzmb GmbH Bad-Langensalza, Germany

Als Hersteller von Blutanalysetechnik sind wir auf präzise und robuste Fertigungstechnologien angewiesen. Mit M2 haben wir einen zuverlässigen deutschen Partner gefunden der uns bei der Qualifizierung des Dispensiersystems sehr entgegenkommend unterstützt hat. Jegliche Sonderwünsche waren problemlos möglich, so dass wir unsere Idealvorstellung kompromissfrei umsetzen konnten. Den schnellen Service von M2 bei nachträglichen Umbauten wissen wir außerdem sehr zu schätzen.

Stefan Frenzel: EKF-diagnostic GmbH Barleben, Germany

The instrument (iTwo-400) was build according to our application requirements after constructive discussions with M2-Automation. Hands on training by M2 specialists was organised at commissioning and after a few months of operation, which was very useful to acquire quickly the necessary skills. The service is impeccable: quick answer to all our questions, and suitable suggestions. We are very happy that we bought our instrument at M2.

Prof. Dr. Ronnie Willaert: Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium

M2-Automation saved our robot storage system (other manufacturer) by providing a 2D imaging system to ensure that the robot does accurate positioning.

Olfert Landt: TIB Molbiol Syntheselabor GmbH Berlin, Germany

We selected our spotter system by quality, flexibility and ease of use. M2-Automation was the perfect choice and not only by the instruments they are offering. The M2 Team walks that extra mile for you whenever needed – just excellent!

Dr. Claudia Gärtner: microfluidic Chip Shop GmbH Jena, Germany

Martin Müller and his entire team at M2-Automation have supported us with excellent solutions during the initial setup of our first production prototypes all the way long to the implementation of a robust and efficient production facility with minimal maintenance demands. In the initial phase of our collaboration we benefited most from their enthusiastic passion to identify our specific requirements and the best comprise between perfect technical solutions and a reasonable budget to reach the targets. Over the last years, with a constant production running, their reliable and incredible short termed support as well as their creative solutions to bridge the sometimes unavoidable waiting times for spare parts has been of highest value for our company. If we could put „stars“ here for professionality, reliability, technical excellence and last but not least a trustful collaboration, it would be 5 of 5 stars and a clear recommendation. M2-Automation – please carry on like this!

Dr. Volker Heiser: Founder & General Manager of Chipron GmbH Berlin, Germany

We approached M24You GmbH, because we were looking for a non-contact spotter to produce custom DNA microarrays with spot sizes well below 100 µm in diameter. After discussing our specific application, we were provided with an individually customized iONE-600 automatic liquid handling system. This device is a very versatile tool, which offers literally hundreds of options that allow full customzation oft he liquid handling program. Learning to handle this device was greatly supported by the dedicated M2 customer support team, which provides immediate and individual assistance in technical issues. I would recommend M24You/ M2-Automation to researchers who need a solution specifically adapted for their individual needs and researchers who need a helping hand when taking their first steps in non-contact printing.

CBL, Dr. Michaela Haider: Head of research and development Linz, Austria

Wir arbeiten seit über 5 Jahren mit Dispensiergeräten der Firma M2-Automation für sehr unterschiedliche Anwendungen in den Bereichen Life Science, Veterinärmedizin und Umweltanalytik. Wir sind sowohl von der Qualität und Performance der Geräte begeistert als auch von dem schnellen und perfekten Service.
