Product Description

The PH-46 is a drop-on-demand printhead that contains four independent fluid reservoirs and dispensing devices. The mounting block for the dispensing devices optionally contains a heater and thermocouple, allowing the fluids to be dispensed at up to 50°C. The 2 mL (1.5 and 0.5 mL optional) polypropylene and 20 mL glass reservoirs can be capped and used to store fluids off-line, and unused fluid can be fully recovered. PEEK and PTFE fittings and tubing combine with the reservoir to make an inert fluid path.

A broad range of materials can be dispensed using the PH-46, including bioactive, optically active, sensor, and other materials. Drop volumes ranging from 5 pL to as high as 0.5 nL have been dispensed.

Standard Features

Four independent fluid reservoirs and dispensing devices; all parts cleanable / reusable; 2 mL capacity removable polypropylene or 20 mL removable glass reservoirs can be used for off-line fluid storage. Unused fluid recoverable; 250 µL minimum load volume for 2 mL reservoir; compatible with Jetlab® 4xl, Jetlab® xl-A, and Jetlab® II.

Available Options

MJ-AT devices available in orifice diameters 10-80µm; 1.5 mL and 0.5 mL polypropylene and 20 mL glass reservoirs; Operation to 50°C.
