Automated Oligonucleotide Rearrangement for DNA Array Preparation
4 February 2015

Microarraying has become a technique of choice for the study of gene expression. Rearrangement of even just a few hundred oligonucleotides by hand is not only tedious but highly prone to non-traceable errors. This is typically a task of choice for the MICROLAB® STAR: it requires precision pipetting and traceability, as well as flexibility. This application describes the role of the MICROLAB® STAR as part of a microarray platform that provides spotting services for various microarray uses—transcriptomics as well as genotyping—and various model organisms.
