Gel Co. of San Francisco last week announced the ArrayBooster, a low-volume hybridization station for DNA and protein microarrays. The system is compatible with slide-based microarrays and has an active agitation feature based on surface acoustic waves. The product uses Advacards, a micro-agitation card with integrated pumps that cover the array and minimize the required sample volume. The company says the product will reduce incubation times and increase the specificity of hybridization and is suitable for the detection of low-expression genes.
