50μm micromesh arrays discontinued
micromesh 50um discontinued

Microsurfaces announces that the 50μm micromesh array is now officially discontinued.

Manufacturing challenges associated with making the smallest 50μm micromesh array resulted in increased variability and decreased product quality. We are actively engaged in developing a new manufacturing process in order to offer the 50μm micromesh in the future. However in the meantime please consider the new 75μm micromesh array or the 50μm microgrid arrays as alternatives.

For more details please see the Micromesh products page.

New 75μm micromesh arrays available
micromesh 75um release

Microsurfaces is very happy to announce the release of the new 75um micromesh array.

The new 75μm micromesh is going to replace the current 50μm micromesh which will be discontinued at the end of 2018. Manufacturing challenges associated with making the smallest 50μm micromesh array result in increased variability and decreased product quality. We are actively engaged in developing a new manufacturing process in order to offer the 50μm micromesh in the future.

50μm and 100μm micromesh arrays available again
MicroEB product release

Microsurfaces is very happy to announce that the 50μm and 100μm micromesh arrays are once again available to purchase.

Recent changes in our facilities and equipment have enabled us to once again reliably manufacture the smaller micromesh arrays.

New products released - MicroEB array and Microwell array
MicroEB product release

Microsurfaces is very happy to announce the release of two new products; MicroEB array and Microwell array.

The MicroEB array contains a parabolic bottom surface and comes in a size ideally suited to the formation of spherical embroid bodies.

The Microwell arrays have been redesigned as a 100μm diameter flat bottom profile well. The new size along with the high density of wells and ability to create custom size arrays ensure the Microwell array is perfectly suited for single-cell sequencing, as well as long term imaging and analysis.
