SCHOTT Nexterion

Product Range: 
  • Specifications:

    Nexterion® Slide E is especially suitable for covalent immobilization of amino-modified and unmodified Oligonucleotides. The epoxy surface coating allows efficient and stable attachment of the biomolecules and provides optimal probe presentation. The nucleic acids react instantly with the epoxy modified surface to form a stable covalent bond. The density of epoxy-groups of the surface remains constant over the entire surface of the slide and has been adjusted to provide optimal binding capacity. The hydrophobic surface creates smaller spot diameters ideally suited for high-density arrays. The surface chemistry is stable and remains active even during very long spotting runs.

    Recommended Probe Types:

    • Amino-modified and unmodified oligonucleotides
    • cDNA molecules and PCR products


    • Stable and covalent binding of probes
    • Superior signal-to-background ratios even from weakly expressed genes
    • Hydrophobic coating supports the spotting of high-density arrays
    • Epoxy chemistry enables long spotting runs

    A full range of functional coating chemistries for DNA and protein microarraying is available. Please contact our Product Specialist for your specific microarray application needs.

SCHOTT Nexterion, a leading supplier of microarray solutions for all DNA and protein microarray applications, was established as a new unit by SCHOTT in 2002 as part of its operations expansion in the biochip market. SCHOTT Nexterion uses two different types of glass for microarray substrates that are produced in the microscope slide format. Both glass types are borosilicate glasses that offer you high chemical resistance, low auto-fluorescence, and an excellent flatness. All slides are laser-cut to reduce the risk of surface contamination. It is SCHOTT Nexterion's goal to assure that you are provided with the best microarray consumables to ensure reliable and reproducible scientific experiments. For this reason, all SCHOTT Nexterion products must fulfill extremely high quality and uniformity requirements. Stringent control over all process steps from initial glass production through the final packaging is being maintained. In addition, SCHOTT Nexterion offers extensive technical application support for all DNA and protein microarray assays.
