Sample & Array Processing Section


Several basic steps are performed during sample processing regardless of the type of test being done.

The general procedures include the isolation of the DNA, RNA or Proteins from a sample, labeling or staining, hybridization and washing.

AlphaMetrix offers a set of tools and systems to help the scientist process the samples. This includes workspace compartments to remove ozon (NoZone Compartments), incubators (Hybex and CytoBrite Systems) and hybridization ovens (Scigene 700 and 777 Series) as well as automated processors (Scigene LittleDipper) for staining and washing.
