Microarray Core (LCRC)

Director: Schurr, Jill, M.S. ASCP (M)


In December 2000, the LSUHSC Program in Gene Therapy in conjunction with the Louisiana Gene Therapy Research Consortium created the Microarray Core to cater to the growing needs of investigators who wanted to perform expression studies. Since that time, our core has helped researchers from around the world process over 3000 samples, resulting in numerous peer-reviewed scientific publications.





  • Affymetrix GeneChip fluidics station ( Fluidics station )

    Lab houses two of these instruments.

  • Affymetrix GeneChip Scanner 3000 ( Gene chip scanner )

  • Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 ( Microfluidics platform )

  • GeneChip Hybridization Oven 640 ( Hybridization oven )

    "Hybridization Oven 640 automates your hybridization process for GeneChip brand probe arrays. The oven provides precise temperature control to ensure successful hybridization, and cartridge rotation to provide continuous
    mixing. Up to 64 arrays can be processed at one time. The
    digital speed control display provides you with the option of selecting specific rotation speeds and to visually monitor the
    speed during the cycle."


  • Microarray data analysis ( Data analysis service )

  • Probe generation ( Material production service )

    "Generation of labeled probe from total RNA."

  • Probe hybridization ( Material analysis service )

    "Hybridization of labeled probe to the microarray, as well as staining, washing and scanning of the array."
