DNA Array

Affymetrix GeneChip Technology

GeneChip technology is a powerful research tool used to evaluate global mRNA expression profiles in a single experiment. Affymetrix uses photolithography to fabricate oligonucleotide probes directly on the glass surface of an array, making them highly reproducible. Each array can contain up to 1.6 million features, each feature being composed of a large number of identical probes.

The Research Core Facility processes RNA for hybridization to Affymetrix GeneChips, including, but not limited to, 3’ IVT arrays, whole transcriptome arrays, and miRNA arrays.
