Genisphere, ArrayIt, Applied Biosystems


Genisphere of Hatfield, Pa., announced the Array 350 kit to replace the Submicro product line. The Array 350 is a single indirect labeling kit for all arrays and is priced at $159 through May 31. The company also announced a new Array 50 kit to work with oligo and cDNA arrays, available at $135.


The ArrayIt division of Telechem is preparing to introduce a protein microarray platform that includes: microarray manufacturing, processing, surface chemistry, detection reagents, scanning, and analysis. The platform is suitable for a variety of proteomic applications including micro multianalyte immunoassays, protein-antibody, antibody-protein, antibody-antigen, protein-protein, and protein-drug microarray assays. It will be available as a service, and as an on-site installation.

The ArrayIt system has 4-degree Celsius cold-room capacity built-in and includes the company’s new Spotbot Protein Edition microarrayers, a CCD-based Spotware Colorimetric scanner, new software, and new membrane slides. It is expected to be ready by the end of the month.


Applied Biosystems has debuted the 7900HT Micro Fluidic Card, which enables users to conduct its Assays-on-Demand for human and mouse gene expression in a high-throughput manner. Separately, the company introduced its Mouse Assays-on-Demand Gene Expression Products, which are available on its e-commerce website.
