Bio-Aware of Chaumont-Gistoux, Belgium has launched BioArchitect, a new bioinformatics software for designing microarrays. The software allows users to configure common parameters such as the direction of the pumping, the number of pins, the slide or membrane orientation, the direction of arraying, and size of spots. It also shows a preview of the arrays with its graphical tool. Using this tool, researchers can highlight or color specific spots, as well as import and export microplates. The data is stored in an MS-Access 2000 database.
