Oct 16, 2021

Posted on The acquisition of the Arizona-based microarray solutions company extends SCHOTT’s manufacturing presence in the United States and strengthens its bioscience capabilities. Customers will benefit from enhanced development and manufacturing capabilities including high-density microarray printing. SCHOTT MINIFAB, a subsidiary of SCHOTT that develops and manufactures microfluidic devices for point-of-care and life sciences consumables, has had a long-standing close customer relationship with Applied Microarrays Inc.

Our expansive offering allows us to provide an integrated single-source collection of value-intensive services and products. With the added bioscience knowledge of AMI, we become an even stronger partner, enhancing our capability in surface modification, functionalization and deposition for both glass and polymer products,” said Greg Wolters, Head of SCHOTT MINIFAB.
