NEXTERION® Slide AL offers a good alternative to NEXTERION® Slide E (Epoxysilane slides) when an efficient covalent, and directed binding of amino-modified bio-molecules is required. NEXTERION® Slide AL is coated with an “active” slide chemistry coating that chemically binds bio-molecules to provide a high binding capacity, and minimize non-specific binding. The uniform surface features aldehyde groups that readily react with primary amines. Both 5’ or 3’ amine modified PCR products, and oligonucleotides work well with this surface chemistry. The covalent bond formed at the terminus of the nucleic acid offers both stability, and maximal base pairing opportunity. The covalent binding diminishes sample loss during the course of experiments, and permits more harsh wash steps, which reduce background, and allow for greater sensitivity. Additional immobilization steps, such as baking or UV cross-linking, are not required for immobilization. Furthermore, peptides, proteins (such as antibodies), cells, and tissues can be immobilized on NEXTERION® Slide AL via random binding to amine sites on the probes. The slides are easy to use, and are compatible with all commercially available arraying and scanning instruments.

The DNA product is spotted onto the aldehydesilane slide. The primary amino linkers (NH2) on the DNA attack the aldehyde groups to form covalent bonds (Schiff’s base). The attachment is stabilized by a dehydration reaction. To minimize fluorescen
