BioMixer II

BioMixer II is a microarray hybridization station that helps the aqueous hybridization mixture spread evenly over the microarray surface by continuous 3-D rotation in a temperature adjustable environment. This exposes each and every sample spot uniformly with the reaction reagent solution, resulting in enhanced reaction signal intensity and signal consistency. BioMixer II is easy to operate, with up to 6 or 12 microarray slides hybridized simultaneously. The BioMixer II is equipped with 4 interchangeable adapters to accommodate hybridization, washing and to facilitate mixing of biochemical reagents in tubes.

Uniform temperature and humidity when used together with CapitalBio´s specially designed hybridization cassettes 

Unique 3-D rotation guarantees the hybridization signal homogenous over the whole microarray surface  

Static hybridization designed for special experiment

LCD control panel

Eliminates edge effects. Enhanced results evidenced in independent reports on microarray quality and performance, such as Patterson et al., (2006) Nature Biotechnology 24:1140-1150 and Shi et al., (2006) Nature Biotechnology, 24:1151-1161

Suitable for hybridizations and immunoreactions on 25 mm ×75 mm slides or in tubes using different adaptors

With BioMixer II, the edge effect is eliminated due to temperature/humidity uniformity and improved fluidic environment inside the chip cassette by 3-D rotation.
