Nanopositioning Solutions for Genomics, Next Generation Sequencing, Microscopy, and Molecular Diagnostics Instrumentation

Next-Generation Sequencing is within a portfolio of key technologies that is transforming healthcare. Next-Generation Sequencers are complex instruments which pose unique challenges for the motion sub-systems, warranting specialized nanopositioning system engineering for genomics and molecular diagnosis applications.

Step and Settle Performance

Step and Settle Performance graph

The proper use of mechanical and electrical motion technologies allows axes within high throughput sequencing instruments to step and settle into position rapidly with minimal system resonance.

Steady State Stability

Axis stability within a complex instrument is a challenging task but is required for critical processes such as imaging. The proper design and repeatable manufacturing of critical axes can form a stable foundation within the motion system and provides a performance margin of safety.

Increased Throughput
