Microchip Format

  • The Microchip is a plastic slide the size of a standard microscope glass slide (1 to 3 inches).
  • Ligands (6 replicates for each) are deposited onto the chip surface as ~100 um drops.

Reasons for Choice of Microchip Format

  • Thousands of ligands can be placed upon slide surface
  • Small amount of reagent is required
  • Compatible with most microchip devices (for hybridization and reading)

Our Ligands

Composition of the Microchip

The Microchip is made of plastic with a surface modified for ligand immobilization and reduction of nonspecific sorption

Reasons for Choosing Plastic

  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to modify
  • Comfortable to use

Advantages of the Microchip

  • Multi-parametric results (one chip – dozens of results)
  • Wide dynamic range (even weak signals are taken into account)
  • Low background noise (microchip response with ligand absence after developing by serum)

Objects under Investigation

  • Blood serum and plasma, amniotic, ascetic and other liquids
  • Bacteria, viruses (included bacteriophages), cells
  • Individual proteins (lectins, antibodies, glycosidases, glycosyltransferases)
