SonoPlot, Inc. today announced the Microplotter Proto, the latest addition to SonoPlot’s Microplotter family. The Microplotter Proto is a picoliter printing system for rapid prototyping, printed electronics, and life sciences research and is ideal for applications requiring flexibility at an affordable price.
The Microplotter Proto utilizes the same patented ultrasonic liquid dispensing technology as the Microplotter II, which enables the printing of a broad range of liquid viscosities and solvent types. SonoPlot’s technology is well-suited for use with materials other systems struggle with, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, conductive polymers, and microparticle mixtures. Applications of this system in printed electronics range from OLED transistors to RFID and antennas and environmental sensors. Life science applications including patterning of live cells to proteomics.
The Microplotter Proto has a robust and rigid positioning system that is compact and lightweight enough to place on a table or lab bench. The entire system is a turnkey package, ready to use out of the box for research or rapid prototyping.
