Arrays and dot blots are common methods to detect binding events of a wide variety of molecules to spotted nucleic acids, antibodies, proteins or peptides in a highly parallel manner.
The Slide Spotting Robot is a versatile platform to create custom arrays adapted to your research. Up to 1000 spots
can be placed on the area of a microscope slide. Arrays can also be created on surfaces which are not flat but have a 3-dimensional structure.
- freely definable array layouts
- up to 60 spots per cm2
- aqueous and organic solvents
One application of the Slide Spotting Robot is the production of CelluSpots™ peptide arrays, a new patented method to create hundreds of identical peptide arrays on microscope slides from one initial synthesis.
CelluSpots™ peptide arrays are inexpensive tools for fast parallel screening experiments:
- Immunodominant epitopes
- Protein binding domains
- Receptor-ligand interactions
- Kinase substrate arrays
Advantages of CelluSpots™ peptide arrays are the small sample volumes needed for incubations and the large number of identical arrays that can be produced with ease.
