New design of large-scale microparticle arrays for bioengineering applications

Arrays of microparticles are common in many material science and bioengineering applications, but can be tedious to use because of their limited capacity. Large-scale microparticle arrays (LSMAs) can make analysis more efficient and precise, allowing for the placement and study of many items at once. Unfortunately, today's techniques of moving to a large-scale platform cannot simultaneously accomplish the requirements of scalability, precision, specificity and versatility that would make the use of LSMAs practical.
