The special 16-well architecture of NEXTERION® Slide MPX allows the parallel analysis of multiple biological samples against focused subsets of probes on a single slide. The dimensions of the microarray slide are fully compatible with all microarray printers and scanners, allowing users to run multiple samples on a single slide without any additional hardware.
The ultra flat, glass slide is manufactured from low auto-fluorescent borosilicate glass with the dimensions 75.6 mm x 25.0 mm x 1 mm. The uniform flatness of the borosilicate glass ensures highly reproducible contact printing and scanning across the wells. The glass slides are partitioned into 16 wells by an ultra-hydrophobic patterning layer. The dimensions and locations of the wells are fully compatible with standard microarray printing parameters.
