AHC4x24-Microarray
Arrayit offers innovative microplate and glass substrate slide solutions for microplate formatted microarray experimentation. These tools are not disposable, tool and gasket can be reused many times. Pictured above is the AHC4x24 which utilizes 4 microscope slide size pieces of glass.  See picture below for formats that use 1 large piece of glass.

Product Descriptions
Now the best microarray glass and surface chemistries are available in the widely used microplate format. These substrates can be used with the NanoPrint microarrayer, 946 Spotting Device and microplate track modules, which are designed for high throughput manufacturing in the 96 well format. These tools allow printing of 1,000 spots in each 96- well sub-array.

All of our surface chemistries set the standard for all microarray applications. Follow these links for more information on performance, protocols and applications.

  • SuperClean substrates are untreated and are delivered ready to use for custom surface chemistry preparation applications. This superior glass is cut to precision dimensions and polished to atomic flatness (50 Å over 76 mm) to provide the most homogenous surface available in industry.  SuperClean Microarray Substrates have an average flatness of 2.0 nm or 20 angstroms, which corresponds to approximately 10 silicon dioxide bonds.
  • SuperAmine chemistry is used to immobilized unmodified long oligos and cDNA’s for gene expression microarrays.
  • SuperAldehyde is used to immobilized amino modified oligos, amino modified cDNA, proteins, cells, lysates, tissues, etc. This surface is specifically useful in immobilizing short oligos for SNP detection microarrays.  SuperAldehyde has been used in many protein microarray applications.
  • SuperEpoxy chemistry is great for protein microarrays.  It is also an excellent surface to immobilize cells, tissues, and carbohydrates.
  • Custom chemistries available, please call for a quote.

Glass Description and Specifications
The glass used for these substrates has been especially manufactured exclusively for this application. This is highly polished glass to create superior homogeneity. No other microarray surface in the world can match our quality. Glass substrates of this optical quality are routinely sold at $300 dollars each by some vendors in industry.

1. Standard Plate Size format (75 mm x 118 mm x 0.960 mm)
3. Flat to <50 Å over 76 mm span
4. Refractive index of 1.52 (400-700 nm)
5. Transmission of >91 % (380-700 nm)
6. Thermal strain point: 490°C
7. Harder than normal glass
8. Extended shelf life

The microplate format is available as 4 standard glass substrate slides (25 x 76 mm) for users requiring a microplate format while maintaining a microarray format for printing and scanning (see Cat. MMH4x24).
