Thermal Inkjet System to Enable Picoliter Dispense of Pharmaceutical Compounds
Picoliter-dispense technology is particularly suited for the creation of direct compound titrations in well plates commonly used for dose-response experiments. Advantages over traditional serial dilution techniques include a reduction of carry over and accumulated error, an improvement in precision, and a reduction in compound usage. Additionally, the HP system enables a simpler workflow and makes finely-spaced dosages practical.
This paper describes key features of the HP system and performance data from pharmaceutical beta sites. It also describes the advantages of a TIJ-based compound-dispensing system relative to existing pipette-based or PIJ (piezo inkjet)-based systems. Finally, it describes some of the advantages of using a non-contact Digital Dispenser in this application.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
