ABSTRACT
The standard methods currently used to read out microarrays are fluorescent and chemiluminesent imaging techniques. These methods require labeling of a component with a marker and, usually, only the concentration of the marker molecule is detected. A label-free imaging method that also enables quantitative spectroscopic analysis of the composition and component interaction would be of great advantage. In this article it is shown for the first time that IR mapping ellipsometry enables label-free imaging of a biochip before and after incubation with peptide solution. The measurements prove that IR ellipsometry is a sensitive tool for laterally resolved identification of the different materials and determination of the composition of a biochip. The lateral resolution required was achieved by using radiation from an infrared synchrotron beamline. [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
