The present article draws a general picture of non-conventional methods for biomolecules immobilization. The technologies presented are based either on original solid supports or on innovative immobilization processes. Polydimethylsiloxane elastomer will be presented as a popular immobilization support within the biochip developer community. Electro-addressing of biomolecules at the surface of conducting biochips will appear to be an interesting alternative to immobilization processes based on surface functionalization. Finally, bead-assisted biomolecules immobilization will be presented as an open field of research for biochip developments.
