Flexible Substrates For DNA Arrays

Array fabrication technologies date back to the early 1990s when Affymetrix first used ultraviolet light to control the stepwise synthesis of biopolymers from a surface.[1] The most commercially successful result of this technology was high-density arrays of DNA. At the time, DNA arrays were one of the most efficient ways to detect and measure nucleic
