Method For Producing Chemical Microarrays


A method of producing a microarray, the microarray itself and the use of the microarray for detecting interactions between probe molecules and analyte molecules from a sample is provided. The method comprises the steps of synthesis, in two or more stages, of probe molecules on a polymeric support, bonds being formed between the probe molecules and the polymeric support; dispersion of the polymeric support having the synthetic probe molecules, the bonds between the polymeric support and the probe molecules being retained; optional purification of the probe molecules bound to the polymeric support; dissolution of the polymeric support having the bound probe molecules; and application of the solution containing the polymeric support having the bound probe molecules in the form of microdrops to a planar surface.
