“Moreover, the past year has seen keen interest in our range of Arrayjet instrumentation products from North America, Australia and now China, so I am delighted that our international focus continues to attract high quality biomedical and life science service providers.

“his is a significant coup for a growing Scottish life science instrumentation company which now has dynamic international reach.”

Arrayjet has received financial support from Archangels, the Scottish-based business angel syndicate.

Archangels director, Mike Rutterford said: “This is yet another excellent contract achieved by Arrayjet and the ‘brand’ appears to becoming synonymous across the world with delivering instrumentation which has the precision and accuracy sought by many of the world’s top laboratories and science parks.

“Arrayjet is destined to be the partner of choice for so many of these research establishments.”
