DropSaver™ Lids for ADE – Custom DropSaver™ Lids for use with ADE systems (Acoustic Drop Ejection)
Special high-tolerance DropSaver™ Lids are excellent for protecting the nano-sized drops used in ADE populated experiments.
Developed in collaboration with Dr. Alexei Soares of Brookhaven National Labs
In combination with custom DropSaver™ Lids, ADE devices can be used to populate plates with ultra-small protein droplets, up to 1728 per plate! 
6 drops per well
(576 drops per plate),
dispensed via ADE
18 drops per well
(1728 drops per plate),
dispensed through slits in a custom DropSaver™ Lid, via ADE2
Can I just 3D print my own lids?
Yes you can. In fact some prototype and early stage DropSaver™ Lids were made using 3D printing techniques. However these provide to be inferior in regards to uniformity, alignment; and most critically, vapor transmission and evaporation rates. For this reason MiTeGen provides DropSaver™ Lids that are micro-machined in low-permeability molded polystyrene.
