SuperArray Bioscience, Genewave

Premium

SuperArray Bioscience last week launched its ArrayGrade FFPE RNA Isolation Kit for isolating RNA from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded samples for microarray-based gene expression analysis.

The company claims the kit can help increase percent positive calls on high-density microarrays by reversing more of the cross-links introduced by the archiving process and recommended its use in cancer and pathology research.


Genewave last week launched AmpliSlide 570/670 A, the first in its line of AmpliSlide microarray slides.

According to Genewave, AmpliSlide 570/670 A is designed for two-color DNA microarray experiments. The slide uses a fluorescence-amplifying dielectric coating to provide up to 16-fold signal enhancement balanced in both colors, Genewave said.
