arrow11A. LifterSlip™ Premium Printed Coverglass

LifterSlip™ offers a simple solution to the problem of hybridization non-uniformity. An innovative raised edge design provides separation and allows for even dispersal of hybridization solution between the DNA chip and coverslip. LifterSlips™ allow for increased data quality by eliminating gradients caused by floating standard coverslips on hybridization solutions. The printed bars allow for easy injection of hybridization solution under the pre-positioned coverslips. Capillary attraction ensures that LifterSlip™ stays in place.

Depending on size and design configuration LifterSlip™ can hold a range of volumes.

LifterSlip™ is #2 thickness (0.20-0.22 mm) and the bar height is 0.04-0.06 mm.

arrow11B. mSeries Lifterslip™

Solving the problem of hybridization non-uniformity

mSeries LifterSlip™ are manufactured from 1mm thick glass specially drawn for flatness and superior surface quality. The 1mm thickness has increased stiffness that reduces variation in hybridization fluid volume. Precise ink printing provides an innovative raised edge design for consistent dispersal and easy injection of hybridization solution under the prepositioned lifterslip.

mSeries Lifterslip™ Features

  • 1mm thick
  • Uniform disposal of hybridization solution
  • Reduced hybridization fluid volume variations
  • Superior flatness - substrate does not flex or bow
  • Precision cut edges
  • Superior surface quality
  • Consistent flatness

arrow11Premium Substrate for Microarray™

Premium substrates for microarray™ is used on a standard microscope slide 1 x 3", selective glass. All of the following slides are pre-packaged in a secure, no-contact mBox™, then vacuum-sealed in a foil barrier bag prior to shipping. Each package contains 20 slides.

Premium Substrate for Microarrayarrow11UltraClean™ Glass Slide

A premium substrate ready to coat with your chemistry.

UltraClean™ substrate provides users with a pristine glass surface which can be used in any coating process compatible with glass such as silanization and polylysine. Manufactured from the highest quality low fluorescence glass.

UltraClean substrates are manufactured in a precise and controlled process incorporating HEPA filtration. This ensures a clean and consistent surface for optimum performance in microarray applications.


  • Slides are available with ES – Enhanced Surface Treatment. ES Surface treatments produce a smaller, more uniform spot size without having to change your protocol

Aminopropylsilane Coated Substratesarrow112. Aminopropylsilane Coated Substrates

SuperChip™ Aminopropylsilane coated substrates are designed for microarrays fabricated with the PCR products as probes. Manufactured from the highest quality, low fluorescence glass, SuperChip features a consistent, superior surface coating to provide a uniform DNA immobilizing surface. The result is the slide that binds an optimal amount of probe while minimizing nonspecific binding of labeled targets assuring high density of reactive groups and eliminating virtually all surface artifacts.

These SuperChip substrates are compatible with commercial microarray spotting and detection system. The SuperChip cleaning and coating process is tightly controlled in a HEPA filtered environment. Quality control includes contact angle and background fluorescence measurement of representative samples.
