Media Cybernetics this week launched version 6.3 of its Array-Pro Analyzer image analysis software. The high-density microarray software provides tools to achieve maximum signal to noise, repeatability, and quantitative accuracy, according to the firm. The latest version includes enhanced file support, new measurements, new reporting tools, and support for 32- and 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, it said.

Additionally, users of Molecular Devices' GenePix line of microarray scanners can now read spatial resolution from the X and Y resolution tags. Those who use GenePix Array List files will see improved support, including the ability to read orange packing from the layout, and an increase of the maximum number of features to up to 4.4 million per image, according to Media Cybernetics.
