Microarray technology is a powerful tool to investigate gene expression profiles to study the interactions between pathogens and associated hosts that cause illness. It can be used to understand the mechanism of virulence, and might also be used to identify a unique host-response signature for pathogen and disease identification purposes. Microarrays have been used to perform DNA sequence analysis of pathogens. In addition to detection and identification of pathogens, microarrays are ideal for characterizing genetic differences between bacteria isolates of the same species to the strain level. Furthermore, the use of microarrays has been gaining importance in the detection of viral agents.
SpinScan Microarray Scanner is an open system for most of biochips including Cell, protein, DNA and peptide chips, therefore, it could be used for various kinds of diagnostics. You can find the compatible chips list HERE

The availability of recombinant allergenic molecules has enhanced IgE antibody assay performance in a number of ways.
It has permitted an increased analytical sensitivity by supplementing extracts that are deficient in a particular allergen specificity.
There is an increase in analytical specificity when selected molecules are used to detect IgE antibodies.
Molecular allergens allow the identification of cross-reactivity.
Selected molecules define IgE antibodies as a marker of a genuine primary sensitization.
