Coated Substrates for
Microarray-based In Vitro Diagnostics


Introduction

Microarray technology has an enormous potential for use in vitro diagnostics (IVD). It is a powerful tool that can be used to measure tens or hundreds of parameters simultaneously from minute amounts of target analytes, and uses very low volumes of test reagents. SCHOTT can offer industrial developers microarray coatings manufactured to specific specifications or special glass formats for use in their diagnostic platforms. SCHOTT draws on over 125 years of glass technology expertise, combined with 10 years’ experience of producing coated microarray products.
