  1. a: The catalog numbers of pins according to Telechem Inc., USA.
  2. b: The spot diameter (in microns) indicates the size of the spot after printing microarrays.
  3. c: The minimum inter-spot distance that can be achieved for each of the respective pins to avoid overlapping or smudging of the spots. Data sourced from Arrayit web site [10].
