Application Notes

Arrayjet scientists have published a series of application notes

If you would like to joint-publish an application note with Arrayjet, we would be pleased to support you.  Contact our microarray experts to discuss feasibility.

Antibody printing

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.

Carbohydrate microarrays

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, it is the first choice for many principle investigators in carbohydrates research.  The carbohydrate application note demonstrates this versatility. 

Assessment of printing reproducibility

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.

Microplate printing

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. 

JetGuard™ application note

Arrayjet has 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. 

Compound library screening application note

Arrayjet has developed a method for printing small molecule microarrays using DMSO buffer.  Under optimised conditions, spot morphology is excellent.
