Types of Microarrays

Sat down to make a list of the things I can remember off the top of my head that have been made into a microarray using our technology. These are not in any particular order, a list of known microarray types.

1.cDNAs
2. BACs
3. Oligonucleotides
4. Peptides
5. Antigens
6. Antibodies
7. Small Molecules (drug targets)
8. Whole Cells
9. Cell Lysates
10. Carbohydrates
11. Glyopeptides
11. Lectins
12. Peptoids
13. Plasmids (used to transfect and grow cells)
14. RNA
15. Expressed Phage
16. Aptamers
17. Artificial Receptors
18. Carbon nanotubes

If you've spotted something out with a SpotBot, NanoPrint or other microarrayer using our pin technology and it's not on this list, please email me and let me know about it . todd@arrayit.com
