Microarray Processing

SciGeneWe offer Scigene equipment processing of Agilent, Illumina, Affymetrix and other non standardized platforms.

Starting with DNA or RNA derived from different sources, specialized instruments work together to perform all labelling through to post-hybridization processing steps; producing consistently high quality arrays ready for scanning.

The Array Workflow:

1. The NoZone Workspace controls the environment and removes ozone during the labeling, hybridization and washing process
2. The HybIce is ideally suited to control temperatures during the labeling process.
3. The 7XX Microarray Ovens the Mai Tai Hybridization System or the Hybex Microarray System enable a precise hybridization process
4. The Little Dipper Processors and NoZone Workspaces work together to automate post-hybridization washing and drying steps within an ozone-safe environment presenting slides ready for scanning

NoZone® Workspaces

Maintains Ozone Levels Below 5 ppb Typical day time ozone levels found in most laboratories can destroy Cy5 and other fluorescent dyes used with microarray samples. Studies show that ozone levels as low as 20 ppb can negatively effect array data.

Featured products and services

The Precellys Evolution has the capability to process 4 different sizes of tubes and up to 24 tubes simultaneously. Its flexibility and high efficiency gives users the ability to grind, homogenize or lyse any type of soft or hard sample from animal, human, plant or microorganism, in about 30 seconds. Read more »

Precellys 24Precellys 24
The Precellys 24 is a highly efficient rapid cell lysis and homogenising instrument designed to liberate DNA, RNA and proteins from a wide range of specimens. Utilising a bead beating process coupled with a powerful figure of 8 motion allows lysis to be achived with very short programs typically less than one minute. Read more »

 Homogenisation tubes
For automated lysis Stretton Scientific offer a range of pre-filled homogenisation consumables. The pre-filled sterilised tubes are supplied with a range of grinding media selected to optimise applications. The beads range from 2.8mm steel beads for highly resistant tissue such as bone and hair down to 0.1mm glass beads for bacteria,spores and yeast. Read more »
