Microarray - Technologie

... being an orderly arrangement of samples within a very small area.


In genetics, the DNA microarray has become one of the most widely integrated usage's of the microarray technology. In this process thousands of DNA sequences can be placed by robots on a substrate, generally a glass microscope slide. Many DNA spots can be arranged in an area smaller than a business card, with which tens of thousands of experiments can be conducted in a period of only two days.

All cells in the human body contain the same genetic material, although not all of these genes are active in each of those cells. In the past it was only possible to conduct such genetic analyses on a few genes at once. With the development of DNA microarray technology and the microarray microslides offered by MENZEL, it is possible to examine thousands of genes with just one test at the same time.


The following categories of microarray microscope slides are available:


Premium Select Microarray Glass:


UltraClean™ microscope slides  - These slides are suitable for your individual coatings. They are manufactured from the highest quality glass and have consistent superior surface uniformity. Therefore they assure best results within microarray applications.

MSeries LifterSlip™

Solving the problem of hybridization non-uniformity.

mSeries LifterSlip™ are manufactured from 1 mm thick glass specifically drawn for flatness and superior surface quality. The 1 mm 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 pre-positioned lifterslip.

MSeries LifterSlips features:

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


The following standard dimensions are available:

22 x 25 mm   22X25I-M-5226

22 x 40 mm   22X40I-M-5516
