We invite you to join our upcoming scientific webinar:
High-Density Peptide Microarrays:
A Versatile Platform for Autoimmune Research
by Jill Roughan, PhD, Technical Sales Representative of PEPperPRINT GmbH, San Diego, USA
Thursday, February 23, 2017 from 9:00-10:00 AM PST / 6:00-7:00 PM CET
Peptide microarrays offer a wide range of applications, including linear and conformational epitope mapping, peptide substitution scans, autoantibody discovery, and the fingerprint analysis of humoral immune responses upon infection or vaccination. PEPperPRINT´s unique peptide microarrays are synthesized in-situ by digital laser printing directly onto glass slides. The benefits of this novel technique are the flexibility in terms of custom peptide content, excellent signal-to-noise ratios and high spot densities allowing high resolution epitope mappings with minimal sample need.
PEPperPRINT has a strong focus on autoimmune research, including CCP microarrays, autoimmune epitope microarrays, autoantibody epitope mapping or discovery platforms with up to 35,000 different peptides per chip. To learn more about PEPperPRINT's technology for precise, fast and cost effective autoantibody characterization, including case studies and published scientific manuscripts demonstrating autoimmune research applications, we invite you to join our upcoming scientific presentation followed by a Q&A session.
