Polymer microarrays were prepared using inkjet printing mixtures of acrylate monomers each with a common fluorescent fluorene co-polymer. Fluorescence analysis of each of the features on the array allowed identification of polymers that could tune the fluorescence under a variety of insults. The "hit" polymers were made into beads via reverse suspension polymerization and their fluorescence properties were analyzed.
