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.
Lab houses two of these instruments.
"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."
"Generation of labeled probe from total RNA."
"Hybridization of labeled probe to the microarray, as well as staining, washing and scanning of the array."
