Nanocrine provides biochips with ready-to-functionalize, self-assembled monolayers (RtF-SAMTM) at specific molecular densities for users to define their surfaces with unique and custom chemistries. Available densities include mean distances of 2 nm, 6 nm, 19 nm, 59 nm, and 187 nm between -COOH functional groups.
Custom densities are available upon request.
Nanocrine Surface Chemistry Biochips provide a standardized and customizable test platform for assessing the influence of nearby molecular density and gradients on cell adhesion, viability and morphology. The biochips allow real-time monitoring of cells over a range of very specific chemical environments.
Each slide contains four ready-to-functionalize surfaces (RtF-SAMTM), provided sterile, in a sealed hypoxic container with desiccant and oxygen absorber. Can be functionalized via amine coupling reagents (preferred Nanocrine Protein Coupling Kit, Cat. # N9-PCK1
For use with Nanocrine Multiwell Biochip Mount, Cat. # : N5-S4
#1.5 cover glass
Culture area = 0.52 cm2
Cell seeding volume = 300 μl
Molecular ratio is verified using surface plasmon resonance (SPR)
Storage & Handling:
Designed for single use
Keep refrigerated at 2-8 °C and protect from light
Handle with forceps only
Permits user-defined chemical substrate environment at validated molecular spacing.
RtF-SAM surfaces are stable when properly stored, preventing wasted time between protein preparation/coupling and experimentation.
Order Nanocrine Coupling Kit separately (Cat. # N9-PCK1)
Control products include passivated surfaces (no functional groups for protein coupling, negative control) (Cat. # N8-PASS)
