The SMF’s microarray service offers a comprehensive set of integrated gene expression services that facilitate studying the role of genomic alterations and transcriptional regulation of genes.
The SMF provides complete microarray services including:
- RNA and DNA sample quality check
- Target preparation
- Hybridization Services
- Imaging Services
- Signal quantification
- Gene Expression profiling
- MicroRNA analysis
- Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) genotyping
- Methylation Analysis
These applications can be utilized to detect and map chromosomal aberrations and SNPs, profile gene expression patterns, identify differences between two populations of DNA or RNA (i.e., tumor vs. normal cell populations), determine the effect of therapeutic agents on the genome and their effect on gene expression, and determine the effect of genetic alterations on gene expression patterns
