DNA Array Fees


Full service analysis includes Agilent RNA quality evaluation, sample labeling, hybridization, staining, scanning and data output.  In addition, the Core will accept labeled RNA samples for hybridization to and scanning of Affymetrix arrays.  The Core will not provide any reagents to investigators labeling their own samples.

Clariom S vs Clariom D:  Clariom S arrays provide a snapshot view of the transcriptome, while Clariom D arrays provide a deeper view.  Clariom D arrays will allow you to interrogate > 500,000 transcripts, including splice variants, rare RNA isoforms and long-noncoding RNA.  Clariom S arrays will allow you to interrogate only well-annotated genes.
