Antibody microarray

Antibody microarray

1. Microarrays
Nanoplasmas fabricates polymer-coated glass or polymeric microarrays nanotextured (3D micro-nano topography) with plasma processing so as to render them highly binding and ultra sensitive.

 

Protein microarrays

Protein microarrays

Main advantages:

  • Fast (within a couple of minutes) surface functionalization of the microarray substrate.
  • Protein microarrays with a 100fold increased sensitivity and 5fold increased intensity compared to smooth substrate microarrays

2. Microfluidics
Nanoplasmas can selectively modify specific areas of the microchannels rendering them hydrophilic or superhydrophobic and antifouling. Sensing and high binding areas, as well as non-binding areas can be defined.

Main advantages:

  • Fast (within a couple of minutes) functionalization of microfluidic channels.
  • Microfluidic devices with embedded superhydrophilic or superhydrophobic areas, such as capillary pumps or passive valves
  • Microfluidic devices with high biomolecule binding areas, or antifouling, superhydrophobic areas.
  • Nanotextured microfluidics to enrich biomolecules (e.g. phosphopeptides, DNA) or capture cells, with a high capacity
