MD3 1 Scanner
Microarray Scanning
Molecular Devices offers a full suite of microarray scanners under its GenePix brand. The GenePix platform is based on 25 years of expertise in low-noise signal amplification and optical design. The systems can handle any slide-based microarray study, from small one- or two-fluor applications to multiple-fluor high-throughput projects requiring automated sample handling and secure enterprise-wide data management and analysis. All GenePix scanners include one license of GenePix Pro Image Acquisition and Analysis Software, the benchmark tool for the acquisition and analysis of microarray images.
MD3 2 QPix
Colony Picking
Unmatched for productivity and performance

Developed from world-class QPix robotics, the new QPix 400 series of microbial colony pickers offers the unique option to simultaneously detect colonies and quantify fluorescent markers in a pre-screening step before picking.
  • More than just colony pickers, these systems enable scientists to:
  • Automate workflows from sampling and spreading to picking
  • Pick the right colonies every time
  • Efficiently manage large, diverse populations for: protein expression, biofuel research, enzyme evolution, phage display, DNA sequencing, library generation and management
QPix systems are used worldwide in over 600 installations in research institutes, sequencing facilities, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. QPix robotics developed a reputation for reliability and accuracy, when used in sequencing centers during the Human Genome project.
MD3 3 Clonepix
Clone Selection & Screening
An established, proven solution
Systems based on ClonePix technology are now used in over 100 laboratories around the world to increase workflow productivity, leaving more time to better characterize target proteins and run new projects.

Companies such as GSK, Merck, Wyeth, Genentech, Centocor, MedImmune, UCB and Genmab have implemented ClonePix systems and data are cited increasingly in scientific conferences.

Automatically screening more clones in less time than conventional techniques, selecting cells with optimal expression levels, and picking colonies with accuracy enables scientists to:
  • Increase probability of finding optimal producers
  • Cut cell line/antibody development times – avoid limiting dilution
  • Reject poor performers at an early stage based on expression levels in situ

MD3 5 PixSelect

Cell Growth Quantification
Objective, quantitative assessment of cell growth
  • Consistent determination of cell confluence and cell number estimation
  • Generation of growth curves
  • Label-free, white light imaging of living cells
  • Suitable for adherent and settled suspension cells
With high quality imaging and intelligent image analysis, CloneSelect™ Imager replaces time-consuming, subjective manual inspections with consistency and objectivity. Cell growth is viewed and tracked in every well in every plate
