The Array Tape™ Platform is the new standard for high throughput applications. Achieve quality data with repeatable results in a flexible, high throughput system at a lower cost per data point. Douglas Scientific provides inline, modular instrumentation that is fully integrated and optimized for use with our revolutionary consumable, Array Tape. This low cost, flexible microplate replacement enables automation of an entire laboratory process on a single platform. The highly automated and robust system allows your scientists to focus on the data, not the automation.

Inline liquid handling system for sample and reagent processing. The system is engineered to support high throughput processing of sub-microliter volumes in 96- and 384-well Array Tape™. Available options include dispensing, plate storage and specialty processes such as incubation and dehydration.

A high throughput, PCR thermal cycler, 3-chamber water bath capable of simultaneously processing up to three spools (230,400 reaction wells) of Array Tape™ or 152 microplates (384-well, 11 mm tall) in a single process run.

Araya® Detection instruments designed for fully automated scanning in Array Tape™. Features include full barcode traceability and software integration. Detection modes include fluorescence intensity and PerkinElmer’s AlphaLISA™* chemistry. Inline and stand alone options available.
