dc.description.abstractSupramolecular NanoStamping is a novel printing method for exploiting the supramolecular interactions between organic and biological molecules. This technology is advantageous because of the ability to transfer a massive amount of chemical and spatial information, its high resolution, the growth of masters used multiple times and the versatility of initial master fabrication. The technology may be used to make DNA microarrays which are an essential tool to genomic research assisting in gene expression and genotyping. This paper explores the potential of bring Supramolecular NanoStamping technology to the microarray market. An in depth analysis of the current patent landscape of DNA microarrays is conducted to recognize the various competitors and the coverage of their patents. In addition, a better understanding of the landscape was achieved by assessing the major litigation that has occurred in the field. By engaging in a thorough intellectual property analysis, the commercialization potential of Supramolecular NanoStamping technology was realized through a licensing model.en_US
