Label IT Array Biotin Kits (Mirus Corp.) offer a single color, chemical labeling method optimized for use in microarray applications. Substitute this simple method for covalent mRNA, cDNA and cRNA labeling directly into a current microarray platform and eliminate the use of labeled nucleotides.
Ovation Biotin RNA Amplification and Labeling System is offered for use on Affymetrix GeneChip arrays. It is validated for reproducibility, fidelity, and sensitivity with GeneChip arrays, using only 5ng of total RNA.
Rat Gene BioGridArray (BGA) facilitates gene-expression studies of toxicity. BGA was developed by choosing genes that have been found to be regulated in response to stress or exposure to toxicants according to publicly available data.
Genetix has announced a 3-colour aQuire dual-laser microarray scanner for detection of GFP, fluorescein and a range of other fluorophores, providing verstatility for imaging DNA, protein, cell and tissue arrays.
Serum Biomarker Chips facilitate profiling of serum biomarkers and discrimination of stages of disease progression. Detection of over- and under-abundant serum biomarkers has value in cancer research. Proteomics researchers can profile and pattern the molecular signature of human serum.
Murine Cytokine Biochip enables multiplexed analysis of thirty mouse cytokines, chemokines and growth factors using minimal sample volumes.
Nexterion Slide E provides an active coating chemistry for the immobilization of oligonucleotides.
The NanoPrint Protein Edition High Throughput Microarrayer includes everything needed to manufacture protein microarrays.
Grape (Vitis vinifera) Array-Ready Oligo Set contains 14,562, 70-mer probes representing grape gene transcripts, and is a tool for microarray analysis of grape gene expression. Each probe is melting-temperature normalized and includes a 5' amino linker to facilitate substrate attachment.
Electronic microarrays from Nanogen contain 100 test sites laid out in a geometric grid. Each test site on the NanoChip array can be controlled electronically from the NanoChip Workstation's on-board computer.
NUNC has introduced a range of microarray slides and accessories. Slides are made with polymer or glass and are available with a number of different surface chemistries optimized for nucleic acid, protein, cell and tissue applications.
Piezorray non-contact microdispensing system is designed specifically for pipetting sub-nanoliter volumes to dense arrays. Liquid volumes are controlled by a piezoelectric tip that dispenses reproducible picoliter volume droplets.
Conduct hybs, washes, detections and other processes at up to 16 experiments per slide, simultaneously treating the group as a single working unit. Four, "16-array" slides fit into a tray that allows robotic systems (designed to manipulate 96-well formats) to process them.
Ez-rays universal microarray surface can be used with cDNA probes, oligonucleotide probes (unmodified, amine-modified, or Acrydite modified), and proteins. The slides provide high signal intensity, low background, and effective reproducibility for microarray fabrication.
