MicoSurfaces, helping you turn your ideas into breakthrough results with the ability to immobilize biomolecules
surface coating technology assist the rapidly growing microarray, microfluidics, and biosensor industries. The core of this technology is derived from MSI’s proprietary chemical processes for the control and engineering of surface properties for immobilizing biomolecules, particularly proteins. Proteins are the primary structural, functional and signaling elements in the human body, thus, a comprehensive analysis of proteins is required to obtain a complete picture of normal and disease processes in the body. MSI’s surface coating chemistry allows the immobilization of proteins and other biomolecules with exceptionally low background and excellent conformational control.
Production of functional coatings on glass slides, coverslips, silicon wafers, nanoparticles, and other customer surfaces for the immobilization of biomolecules. MSI provides customized coating services to MEMS and BioMEMS industries. MSI’s glass slide is more advantageous 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 microfluidics, biosensors, and other bio-analytical and bio-physical experiments.
MicroSurfaces have developed proprietary surface coating technologies optimized for a wide range of applications in biomedical research. These include 1) The ZeroBkg line of PEG or Dextran brush surfaces for biomolecule immobilization with exceptionally low background and optimal probe activity; 2) The FluidicArray technolgy for air-stable and fluid lipid membrane bilayer as cell membrane mimicking surfaces; 3) Other molecular coatings such as high density polylysine coatings, uniform silane monolayers, and a wide range of thiol self-assembled monolayers.
their newest technology, a new class of robust PEG surface coatings, can withstand harsh experimental conditions, such as high temperature (boiling) or highly acidic (pH as low as 2) for biomedical research.
MSI is also offering high throughput screening (HTS) services of compound libraries, drug candidates, & nanoparticle-based medicine. We specialize in the HTS of cell surface interactions in proteomics and glycomics analysis using our FluidArray® cell-membrane microarray platform
