Agilent Microarray Scanner 

Model # of equipment:

Agilent B-Microarray Scanner

Brief Description of equipment:

Agilent microarray scanner aids in quantifying gene expression profile. This machine can scan 1X244K, 4X44K, 8X15K arrays with XDR and dual channel mode.

Capabilities of the equipment:

Design your own set of probes and get them printed, even on a single array, for no extra cost. Agilent uses 60-mer probes, increasing the sensitivity of your reaction 8-fold when compared to 25-mer technology. This system also allows dual color or single color array experiments giving researchers greater flexibility in their experimental design.
