A novel self-aligned method to selectively immobilize proteins on a silicon dioxide surface is developed in conjunction with a standard lift-off patterning technique of a PEG layer. The approach is designed to photolithographically pattern regions that specifically bind target proteins and particles, surrounded by regions that suppress non-specific attachment of bio-species. The physical and biological properties of the derivatized surfaces at the end of the fabrication process are characterized.
