iScan System Features

Extensive Applications

Empower your research with a revolutionary high-precision scanner that supports an extensive range of array applications, unlocking the potential for limitless discovery. The iScan System supports our broad portfolio of innovative genetic analysis assays for genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, and gene expression profiling.

Innovative Imaging System

The iScan system uses high performance lasers, optics and detection systems to offer sub-micron resolution and unmatched throughput rates. The result is dramatically reduced scan times without sacrificing data quality and reproducibility. With a high signal-to-noise ratio, high sensitivity, low limit of detection, and broad dynamic range, the iScan system produces exceptional data quality for any biomarker screening or validation study.

Flexible, Scalable System

The iScan system offers the flexibility to meet a variety of throughput needs. Automating assay processing with a liquid-handling robot and Autoloader 2.x reduces hands-on time and enables scanning to occur 24 hours per day. Scanners and components are modular, creating a tunable system that can be configured to match any scale of project.
