Application Note: Comprehensive Comparison of Protein Microarray Supports using Contact and Non-Contact Systems
24 August 2017

The quality of biochips depends on both the support membrane and the deposition technology. This application note compares Nitrocellulose Membranes (NC) Sartorius white (SCHOTT Nexterion Slides NC-W) and Sartorius black (SCHOTT Nexterion Slides NC-D*), to other comerically available NC slides. The probe deposition was performed using a split-pin spotter (Genetix Qarray mini), pin and ring spotter (Affymetrix 417 Arrayer) and a non-contact spotter (sciFlex Arrayer S3).
