Application Notes

Building on years of R&D, Arrayjet's scientists have tested various microarray applications and published notes to demonstrate the high quality bio-printing capabilities of their systems.

Protein and DNA microarrays are the key strengths of Arrayjet technology.  The antibody microarray application note highlights the reproducible printing of fluorescence-labelled antibodies onto functionalised glass slides to produce high quality arrays. 

Antibody printing

 

The production of carbohydrate microarrays presents unique challenges and extraction solvents can be very harsh.  Arrayjet technology is suited to printing samples with vastly different chemical and physical properties and as such, is is the first choice for many principle investigators in carbohydrates research.  The carbohydrate application note demonstrates this versatility.

Arrayjet instruments are built with a strong focus on quality control and spot consistency.  The application note on printing reproducibility provides evidence of reliability across slide batches printed using Arrayjet microarrayers.

Assessment of printing reproducibility

 

By not coming into contact with the substrate, Arrayjet instruments can be used to print onto a variety of substrates as detailed in the microplate printing application note.  The non-contact sample deposition is also ideally-suited for protein microarray printing onto delicate nitrocellulose and hydrogel surfaces.

Microplate printing

 

Arrayjet have optimised methods of preventing sample evaporation during long print runs.  The JetGuard™ forms a seal in every single well of a 384 microplate.  Samples are protected against airborne contaminants and sample plates can be reused to produce reliable microarrayers.
