Nine Critical Factors to Diagnostic Microarray Development. 20 Years of Lessons Learned.

 The successful design and development of medical diagnostic point of care or clinical microarrays can be among the most daunting of challenges for both startups and incumbent companies alike.  Navigating this challenging path requires significant experience and multidisciplinary expertise.  With an introduction from SCHOTT MINIFAB’s Dr. James Downs, in this 30-minute presentation, Dr. Tamma Kaysser-Kranich will discuss 9 key factors critical to diagnostic microarray development for the IVD market.

The discussion will review detection methodologies, substrate types, active surface chemistries, biological detector types, as well as critical microarray design considerations and features. Dr. Kaysser-Kranich will clarify how these factors, through an integrated approach to early design, are key to successful product development, and in turn lead to fewer downstream product design changes and a more rapid path to product launch.

 Specifically, participants can expect to learn:

  • 9 key factors critical to molecular microarray development
  • The value that integrated approach to the early design phase plays in the success of product development
