Polymer adhesive surface as flexible generic platform for multiplexed assays biochip production
An article describing the flexibility and the robustness of AXO Science proprietary technology is now available in Biosensors&Bioelectronics journal. link: Article
This publication highlights :
► Adhesive microarrays shall be the cost-efficient approach for high-throughput analysis tools.
► Tests were carried out in 96, 384 and 1536-well assemblies suitable for automated analysis.
► Analytical results of DNA, antibodies and proteins detection, directly in sera, are presented.
► The adhesive microarray support is also suitable for localized cell culture.
Biosensors World Congress
Dr Christophe Marquette has presented AXO Science innovations to the renowned world congress Elsevier Biosensors 2012 :
“Polymer adhesive surface as flexible generic platform for biochip production”
“Sensitive and reliable analytical performances of the created systems were demonstrated for sandwich protein detection (C-reactive protein), multiplex hepatitis C serology and hybridization assays (multiplexed genotyping assay), both in automated classical 96-well microplate format and microfluidic environment. It is worth to notice that thanks to the very good optical properties of the adhesive, any optical detection (colorimetric, fluorescence and chemiluminescence) can be used.
This innovation is at the same time biocompatible and fully adaptable with any subsequent integration into complete analytical systems. Moreover, the use of medical grade adhesive polymer dramatically simplifies the manufacturing process.”
Advances in Microarray Technology
Benjamin Corgier will give a talk entitled
“Adhesive microarrays”: A new integrative solution
at the international conference
Advances in Microarray Technology.
The presented process is highly flexible, provides ease of implementation and produces reliable microarrays of active biomolecules for device assembling and subsequent automated processing. This technology is developped in collaboration between AXO Science and the ICBMS.
“This conference will discuss the wide range of cutting edge research being conducted using Microarray technologies in various scientific fields. Focusing on areas such as DNA / Protein expression profiling and genotyping, tissue arrays for histological analysis and biomarker discovery, an overview of the diverse work being carried out in this important field will be given.”

HIFI Technology obtains Arnault Tzanck prize
The French federation for voluntary blood donation (FFDSB), in collaboration with the Federation of Amault Tzanck Institute has awarded the Arnault Tzanck research in blood transfusion to Dr. Jean-Charles Brès (EFS Rhône-Alpes, partnership with the Laboratory of molecular Haematology, EFS Alpes Méditerranée and laboratory of enzyme engineering and biomolecular, Université Lyon 1 – CNRS 5246 ICBMS). Presented April 22 at the Ministry of Health with a 30 000 euros grant, this prize recognizes his research on the “development of microarrays for blood genotyping in the blood screening process”. Price Arnault Tzanck is awarded every two years to researchers or doctors whose contribution can improve knowledge, efficiency and safety of blood transfusion device.
