we designed a high-speed (up to 200 mm/s) robotic system with a range of 200 x 200 x 100 mm, perfectly adapted to coat standard sbs plates. all the moving parts are placed above the spraying area, effectively avoiding contamination. the spray arm consists of 7 parts, which can easily be disabled for cleaning.

up to 3 liquids are connected to the system together with a cleaning solution (typically ethanol or methanol). the pneumatic spray can accurately deliver the solutions in a range from 1 uL/minute to 10 uL/s, covering a wide range of spraying conditions required to deliver matrix, standards, enzymes, buffers and more. the software to run the robot is found on github/stoeckli/deltaSpray
the iMatrixSpray comes with a intuitive web interface and provides its own wlan access point. it can be controlled with a pc, tablet or even with a mobile phone. the user can generate a spraying method by defining the spray parameters, or can download, save and execute a custom g-code file for his/her spraying requirement. the iMatrixSpray delivers a live video stream which can be accessed from the web interface or by a streaming client (github/stoeckli/iMatrixSpray).
