MicroSurfaces Inc. develop surface coating technologies for microarray, microfluidic and biosensor applications.
Their proprietary core technology is derived from chemical processes which allow the control and engineering of surface properties to immobilise biomolecules in particular proteins.
MSI provide functional coatings on glass slides, covers slips, silicon wafers and other surfaces.
Their most recent development is a new class of robust PEG surface coatings that can withstand harsh experimental conditions.
If you require a specific size, thickness or profile that is not listed please contact us to create a custom array for you.
MICROCELL ARRAY NOT STICKING TO THE CELL CULTURE WARE
IRREVERSIBLY BONDING MICROCELL ARRAY INSERT TO A GLASS SURFACE
MATLAB TOOL BOX FOR PROCESSING TIME LAPSE MOVIES OF CELLS
John Markham from the National ICT Australia (NICTA) has developed a MATLAB based tool box called MATS (Microgrid Array Tools) to process time lapse microscopy experiments using microgrid arrays. Unlike other processing software MATS has some specific features for use with microgrid arrays like;
MSI provides functional coatings on glass slides, coverslips, silicon wafers, nanoparticles, and other surfaces for the immobilisation of biomolecules, including customised coating services. MSI’s glass slide has distinct advantages over current glass slides on the market. This advantage is reflected in its exceptionally low background, high uniformity, and high chemical reactivity. MSI has combined novel technologies from both surface chemistry and protein chemistry to create a class of high quality functional glass slides and surface modification technologies for microfluidic devices.
MSI also offer high throughput screening (HTS) services of compound libraries, drug candidates and nanoparticle-based medicine. They specialise in the HTS of cell surface interactions in proteomics and glycomics analysis using their FluidArray® cell-membrane microarray platform.
