A Rat Whole Genome Array has been added to the GE Healthcare CodeLink microarray platform portfolio. For researchers using rat expression models, this array consolidates genome-wide expression profiling into a single bioarray experiment.
NanoPins ceramic microarraying pins provide spot uniformity and efficient sample use, short printing run times, and eliminate pre-blotting with most print buffers. Capillary design reduces sample loss due to evaporation. Chemically-inert ceramic material provides long pin life.
Genetix hybrid bed option compliments its medium-throughput, fully featured QArray2 microarray platform.
LS Reloaded automation-friendly microarray scanners support both customized array formats and microplates. High throughput and automatic gain control are accomplished using different laser and filter combinations in one scan.
"Hypoxic" (or gas-controllable) glove boxes have become important tools for studies of cells and tissue cultures. Researchers are discovering that exposing cells to variable oxygen conditions affects their physiology in dramatic ways compared to cells kept in

GeneMarker is an analytical tool for both AFLP and genotyping applications such as fragment and microsatellite analysis. The program features automated stutter peak and saturation correction, two of the most common genotyping difficulties.
SURVEYOR Check-It Kit (Transgenomic, Inc.) for clone sequence analyzes cloned DNA to detect
Array-Ready Oligo Set for the Xenopus tropicalis genome contains 10,898 70mer probes representing Xenopus transcripts, and provides a valuable tool for microarray analysis of Xenopus gene expression.
Qbiogene has introduced three new kits for purifying mRNA directly from cells, tissues, or total RNA. Formulated to achieve high yields, the kits incorporate a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) molecular probe that has an extremely high binding affinity for mRNA.
UltraClean Plant DNA Isolation Kit isolates DNA from plant cells and tissues in less than 35 minutes. The kit removes polysaccharide and phenolic inhibitors of PCR yielding DNA greater than 50 kb in length. Purified DNA is ready for immediate use.
MRC geneservice's (MRCg) Whole Genome Amplification service provides amplification of small quantities of DNA to provide sufficient quantities for larger scale and multiple projects.
The Ovation RNA Amplification System (NuGEN Technologies, Inc.), enables analysis of small samples for gene expression experiments, especially those based on real-time quantitative PCR (QPCR).
Affymetrix, Inc. and ParAllele BioScience offer early technology access to ParAllele's MegAllele genotyping reagents for use with Affymetrix GeneChip arrays, enabling researchers to perform large-scale gnotyping in their own labs with their own panels of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
