Capabilities

 

SEQUENOM MASSARRAY GENOTYPING SYSTEM

The MassARRAY system is based on MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS).  This system provides for high accuracy and sensitivity, and is a scalable platform with a suite of applications for quantitative and qualitative nucleic acid analysis, provides flexible assay design, fast time-to-results, and cost effective sample run from tens to thousands of samples daily. These features make it the ideal genetic analysis system for validation and fine mapping studies in basic and translational research settings.

 

AGILENT MICROARRAY SYSTEM

This is a complete system for supporting all of the steps from sample preparation to data acquisition using Agilent's microarray technology.  Currently, Agilent microarrays contain 1,000,000 features and allow for as many as 8 arrays to reside on a single slide, allowing experiments to range from a genome-wide view to more focused studies, using either standard or custom content. Agilent supports a variety of formats, probes, genomic applications, and species, from which researchers can determine the right combination of options to meet specific experimental needs.  Applications supported by this system are:CGH, chip-on-chip, DNA methylation, gene expression, and microRNA studies.

 

LUMINEX FLEXMAP 3D SYSTEM

The FLEXMAP 3D system combines differentially dyed fluorescent microsphere sets with an innovative instrument design to enable precise, rapid multiplexing of up to 500 unique assays within a single sample. Features such as automated probe height adjustment, simplified routine maintenance operations and an intuitive software interface make the FLEXMAP 3D system a flexible and easy-to-use multiplexing platform capable of quantifying protein and nucleic acid biomarkers.
