Printing High-Density Proteins & Antibodies Onto Microarrays

Research from the University of Limerick, Ireland has led to the development of an innovative fluid handling technology that operates in the pico and nano liter volume range, and a spinoff company called Poly-Pico Technologies. The company offers off-the-shelf and custom solutions to meet ultra-low volume dispensing needs. Applications of the new technology include printing of high-density protein, antibody, or DNA microarrays; digital polymerase chain reaction (PCR); high-throughput screening and drug discovery; and dispensing of living cells.
