Microarray Core Facility

Array Production

The core operates a state-of-the-art contact microarray printing robot (MicroGridII, DigilabGlobal).

The printing robot can accomodate 120 slides per run using 1-48 individual spotting pins.

We routinely print sample libraries ranging from 10 to 10,000 samples. Our expertise lies in specialty projects with challenging and unique applications. Examples include: glycans, peptides, small molecules and RNA. 

The primary printing technology used is Telechem Stealth stainless steel microarray pins using sample libraries prepard in 384-well microtiter plates.
