Nitrocellulose-coated 96-well Microplate for parallel Analysis of Multiplexed Assays
Nitrocellulose coated plates for high-throughput screening and biomarker discovery
October 28, 2010 (Jena, Germany) - SCHOTT has added a 96-well nitrocellulose-coated microplate to its extensive line of Nexterion® microarray substrates. The product combines nitrocellulose, the surface of choice for protein microarrays, with the high-throughput 96-well microplate format; making automated parallel assays a reality.
The MTP-NC96 conforms to the SBS standard microplate format commonly used for high-throughput screening and biomarker discovery. SCHOTT’s innovative two-component system allows users to array many types of probes on a flat, planar surface, and then create a 96-well microplate post-printing. The nitrocellulose is manufactured using an advanced casting method, producing a highly reproducible surface with an identical performance to SCHOTT’s successful range of nitrocellulose-coated slides. The Nexterion MTP-NC96 is available in two formats either one large single pad (105 x 69 mm usable area) plate, or ninety-six (6 x 6 mm) pads.
Andrew Hemingway, SCHOTT Technical Glass Solutions sales manager commented, “We have had many customer requests for a nitrocellulose-coated product that is suitable for automated high throughput processing. The large single pad microplate format has opened up many interesting applications beyond low density protein microarrays, such as large scale MicroSpot ELISA and Micro-Western blots.”
The Nexterion MTP-NC96 range will be launched at the Microarray World Congress, San Diego, CA on October 28, 2010.
