Highly Flexible Microarray Spotter

The iTWO-300P stands as M2-Automation's R&D system, ensuring uncompromised performance and flexibility. It serves as a fully customizable platform, allowing precise tailoring to match your exact requirements. Beginning as a foundational model, it has the potential for upgrades to a cutting-edge, fully automated microarray-spotting instrument of unparalleled performance.

Notably, it boasts the best flexibility-to-footprint ratio, maximizing utility within limited space. In essence, the iTWO-300P microarray printer encapsulates versatility, precision, customization, and seamless integration, making it a valuable asset across a spectrum of applications, from academia to production environments.

Instrument Configuration

In its compact design, the iTWO series can house everything your process needs. Starting with a precision axis system, each iTWO can be modified with a variety of support systems for complete environment and process control.

  • Humidity control, particle-free
  • Two types of syringe pump for aspirate/dispense
  • Multiple cameras for inline-QC


Target-Area Options

The target of the iTWO-300P can be equipped with one of our ultra-smooth vacuum tables, a planar target holder, or MTPs. This provides the system with the ability to print directly on membranes, glass slides, planar films, biosensors, or microfluidic applications. All target options can be temperature controlled.

  • Ultra-smooth surface
  • Target temperature control


Source-Area Options

In order to make the most of the deck space, multiple deck layouts are possible. For a high amount of samples, two MTPs can be used while a big target area still remains available. No matter what the different volumes and amounts of your samples are, our iTWO can handle it.

  • Microtiter plate, 8-well stripes, or both
  • Source temperature control
