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.
Dharmacon, Inc., has expanded its siARRAY Small Interfering RNA (siRNA) library offering. The company has also introduced a whole human genome library containing over 100,000 gene-silencing reagents targeting more than 22,000 unique human genes listed in the NCBI RefSeq database.
Amersham Biosciences has added a Human Whole Genome Bioarray to its CodeLink product range. With 54,841 gene targets, the new chip offers high content, the majority of which has been functionally validated.
MetriGenix, Inc is offering custom arrays for gene expression analysis on their MGX 4D Array System. The arrays can be designed for any organism, such as human, mouse, rat, bacteria, or plants.
MessageAmp II aRNA Amplification Kit incorporates the newly engineered ArrayScript M-MLV RT to maximize yields of full length cDNA. The kit selects and amplifies mRNA from as little as 100 ng of input RNA in a single round of amplification for GeneChip analysis.
The company offers a range of ceramic materials and coatings for microarray slides. With their chemical inertness, resistance to protein binding, and optical properties, the ceramic materials and coatings provide an ideal environment for microarray slides used in the analysis of DNA and proteins.
Thiol-based Functionalization Kits include a choice of thiol-based chemicals, gold-coated glass slides or coverslips, as well as an easy-to-follow protocol.
Vivid microarray slides are constructed of a glass base with a membrane printing area. The use of membrane slides as a microarray substrate facilitates high binding and simple immobilization methods.
As the progression from cDNA arrays to oligos continues, the company offers a substrate for covalent attachment of short oligonucleotides (approximately 30-mers) with reagents for printing and hybridization and array washing.
Human Cytokine Biochip incorporates surface-bound affinity capture agents with three-dimensional biochip architecture to quantitatively analyze specific cytokines and chemokines existing in human samples.
By Mark Terry Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are enzymes that remove acetyl groups from lysines near the ends of the histones, the proteins wrapped in the DNA of chromosomes.
BioPette E Electronic Pipettes feature a motorized piston drive, are available in single and multichannel versions, and are lightweight, ergonomic, and accurate. A high precision stepper motor and optical coupler system accurately monitor and control piston movement.
