Pathogen identification in clinical routine is based on the cultivation of microbes with subsequent morphological and physiological characterisation lasting at least 24 hours. However, early and accurate identification is a crucial requisite for fast and optimally targeted antimicrobial treatment. Molecular biology based techniques allow fast(More)
The simplicity and potential of minimal invasive testing using serum from patients make auto-antibody based biomarkers a very promising tool for use in diagnostics of cancer and auto-immune disease. Although several methods exist for elucidating candidate-protein markers, immobilizing these onto membranes and generating so called macroarrays is of limited(More)
ARChip Epoxy and ARChip UV are presented as novel chip platforms for oligonucleotide immobilization. ARChip Epoxy is made of reactive epoxy resin available commercially. ARChip UV consists of photoactivatable poly(styrene-co-4-vinylbenzylthiocyanate). Both ARChip surfaces are tested in a model assay based on oligonucleotide probes from a real-life(More)
