Protein Microarray Surface
FAST™ Slides are the premier surface for protein microarray applications.
FAST Slides are glass slides coated with a proprietary nitrocellulose polymer. The polymer binds proteins in a non-covalent, irreversible manner and can be probed using the same method as in traditional blots.
FAST Slides are suitable for many types of protein microarrays including antibody arrays and microarray Westerns. There are tremendous advantages to using FAST Slides over traditional ELISAs and Westerns including less sample required, better sensitivity, linearity, and quantitation. The major advantage is that hundreds or thousands of antibodies or samples can be screened simultaneously.
Compatible Detection Methodologies
FAST Slides are compatible with fluorescent, chemiluminescent or radiographic detection systems.
Optimal use of FAST Slides is supported by Incubation Chambers, Slide Holders and Protein Array Buffers and Reagents. The FAST PAK Kit combines these items (except Slide Holders) in a convenient starter format. The MicroCaster™ Arrayer allows manual printing of microarrays for labs making a few slides or just starting out.
