Microarray Instruments and Supplies

Microarray
Genetic analysis and research is an important pathway for molecular biologists to define diseases and develop treatments. It can also be time-consuming. However, technologies like microarray assays increase efficiency and reduce turn-around time by allowing thousands of gene sequences to be tested simultaneously. Samples are compared to a known control, creating a genetic profile for scientists to use in diagnostics and drug discovery.

 

For microarray testing, samples are prepared by creating single-stranded RNA or DNA control templates, “spotting” them onto a substrate (such as a glass slide), and hybridizing them to the target test sequences that have been labeled with light-emitting fluorescent molecules. A series of chemical buffers that activate, wash and stabilize the reactions are used. Base pairing occurs during the binding process, and resulting mutations, transcriptions or missing genes are identified.

Instruments and consumables designed for microarray testing include sample preparation equipment such as centrifuges, hybridization stations and slide imprinters. Additionally, printers (or spotters) use probes to place the DNA controls onto the slide in an ordered fashion. Scanners detect light that is emitted by the expressed genes and store the information for further study. See Terra’s complete group of microarray products below to help with your laboratory’s purchasing efforts.
