Functionalized Glass Slides

2D-functionalized Glass Slides

For cost-sensitive applications PolyAn has developed a range of 2D (2-dimensional)-reactive glass slides that are manufactured from high quality glass with an ultra-flat surface and low inherent fluorescence. The glass is coated with a thin silane layer that will covalently bind most types of bio-molecules. The defect-free surface features uniform silane layers that provide a high covalent coupling efficiency together with a very low background. The slides are easy to use, and are fully compatible with all commercially available arraying and scanning instruments.

3D-functionalized Glass Slides

PolyAn’s 3D-functionalised microarray Slides are functionalized with a three-dimensional (3D)-surface chemistry comprised of a long-chain polymer containing a defined number of reactive groups. This polymer is covalently linked to the surface of the slide.

Our MSE-technology gently binds the functional layer onto the surface without damaging the base substrate. The morphology of the functional surface and thus the number of the reactive groups can be fine-tuned within a narrow range. This yields a number of advantages:

  • Low fluorescence background: Covalent binding of functional layer on the substrate without changing the initial autofluorescence.
  • Low unspecific binding: Combination of reactive functional groups with PolyAn antifouling matrix.
  • Topography:Tuneable surface,hydrophilicity / hydrophobicity (contact angle).
  • Uniform spot morphology: Narrow variation of surface properties and homogeneous distribution of reactive groups.
  • Optimal density and high accessibility of reactive groups: Morphology and thickness of functional layer tailored to the desired application.

Functionalized Polymer Slides

Especially for diagnostic applications PolyAn is offering a broad range of functionalized microarray polymer slides. For reasons of reliability and bio-safety, patient-centric biomarker testing is always performed in single-use cartridges with a one-step process (sample in – result out). These cartridges should be disposable after use, so the materials of the cartridge should be non-hazardous and recyclable.

PolyAn's Polymer Slides are comprised of a low auto fluorescence plastic. The material is highly robust against breakage making it the material of choice when working with hazardous materials. It is suitable for injection molding and hot embossing processes.

The slides are produced with standard dimensions of 25 x 75 x 1 mm. Additionally, we offer the functionalization of your plastic including microfluidics with a surface modification that is tailored to your specific application. Please also have a look at our ProPlate, HybriWell and SecureSeal products that facilitate handling of slides.

Functionalized Coverslips

For high-resolution microscopic imaging or scanning applications PolyAn offers functionalized coverslips. All of PolyAn's standard functional coatings can also be applied to coverslip glass. All coverslips have the standard dimension of 25 x 60mm. Type #1.5 is used as a standard thickness. All coverslips are packed in boxes of 5. Other functionalities and formats are available upon request. PolyAn also offers functionalised substrates that are coated with gold or other noble metals as well as waveguide materials.

Functionalized PMMA microparticles (beads)

PolyAn is offering a portfolio of monodisperse PMMA (poly methyl methacrylate) particles for multiplex bead assays, calibration of flow cytometers and calibration of fluorescence imaging systems as well as a wide range of other applications in LifeScience research. PolyAn’s non-porous particles are comprised of a PMMA core with a 3D surface modification:

  • Transparent PMMA beads (microparticles)
  • Functionalized, transparent PMMA beads (microparticles)
  • Fluorescence encoded beads for standardisation and calibration
  • Functionalized fluorescence encoded beads
  • Fluorescence encoded beads for multiplex bead assays
  • Calibration slide for fluorescence imaging systems
  • Fluorescence lifetime encoded beads
PolyAn’s microparticles can be colour encoded with up to six fluorescent dyes. The fluorophores are directly incorporated into the core of the bead during the microparticle formation. This ensures a much more homogeneous distribution of the dyes within the beads when compared to conventional diffusion controlled dyeing processes.

PolyAn’s microparticles are functionalized using our proprietary Molecular Surface Engineering (MSE) Technology. PolyAn’s reactive matrices are suitable as a platform for a wide range of coupling methods. Our microparticles are characterized by low non-specific adsorption and low aggregation behaviour.

PMMA Nanoparticles

Our PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) based nanospheres are available in sizes between 100 nm to 500 nm. They are characterized by a narrow particle size distribution and an excellent lot-to-lot reproducibility. PMMA submicron beads are biocompatible und thus suited for live cell applications. Latex beads with carboxy and aldehyde for immobilization of biomolecules (proteins, antibodies, haptens, etc.) as well as plain beads are available.
