DNA Microarray Scanner from Agilent Technologies

Description

The Agilent DNA microarray scanner is a 48-slide scanning system enabled by SureScan High-Resolution Technology capable of scanning with 2, 3, 5 or 10 micron resolution that can read 1 x 3” glass slide microarrays and seamlessly feature extract them all using Agilent’s Feature Extraction Software with robust statistical analyses.

As microarray technology evolves and the size of microarray features decrease, the Agilent microarray scanner has evolved to accept these microarrays. With the introduction on the high-resolution scanner, Agilent is prepared to accept the new generation of high-density microarrays.

Features
  • The Agilent Scanner now includes the Ozone-Barrier slide cover for a low-cost and easily-implemented solution to protect against ozone-induced-dye degradation while in the scanner’s slide holder.
  • Agilent Scanner updated to include high resolution scanning
  • High resolution scanning with pixel sizes of 2, 3, 5, and 10 microns enables users to scan a range of array types from ultra-high density commercial arrays as well as low-density home-brew arrays.
  • Low level detection resulting from optimized precision optics, broad dynamic range, minimal spectral cross talk allowing users to detect weak features, achieve rapid, accurate and dependable results
  • Uniform images and enhanced sensitivity with dynamic autofocus to keep features in focus while scanning to minimize the effects of gradients and aberrations associated with glass slides
  • Extended dynamic range of 106 (20-bits) for high sensitivity scanning without saturation
  • Fast 5 micron scans in about 8 minutes by simultaneous two-color scanning, or under 20 minutes for 2 and 3 micron scans for speedy results.
  • Laser-saver feature enables programmability to turn on and off according to a given lab's workflow needs, thereby increasing the laser's lifespan while reducing instrument maintenance
  • Automated feature extraction and analysis of Agilent and non-Agilent microarrays with Feature Extraction software that can process the microarrays automatically as soon as the scanner completes the scan
