Peptide Microarray Facility

The Peptide Array Facility located in the Biodesign Center for Innovations in Medicine produces and sells high-density random-sequence peptide microarrays.  The center manufactures the arrays in-house using lithography and standard BOC peptide synthesis.  Wafers have an epoxide substrates applied by local Tempe-based Applied Microarrays prior to synthesis.  After synthesis, arrays are diced into slides using Tempe-based semiconductor dicer Advotech. Clients have included Lily, Roche, Merck, UCSF, Duke, and small biotech companies.  The facility has analyzed primates, chickens, dogs, humans, mice and rats for IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE and IgY.
