Agilent Expression Profiling Service

General Information

The Agilent microarray platform is among the world’s leading DNA chip technologies. Based on 60mer oligonucleotides and a very flexible ink jet printing device, Agilent microarrays offer many outstanding features:

  • Very high dynamic range (>4 logs)
  • Very high accuracy, as measured by comparison with TaqMan RT-qPCR (r>0.9)
  • Cost-effective multiplex formats (e.g. 4plex, 8plex)
  • Design of custom arrays is free of charge
  • Low amount of starting material required (100 ng of total RNA)

Service Range

Full Service: Customer sends total RNA or mRNA. ATLAS Biolabs takes over the complete processing procedure incl. sample labelling, array hybridisation, washing, staining, scanning and basic data analysis.

Core Service: Customer sends labelled cRNA. ATLAS Biolabs performs array hybridisation, washing, staining, scanning and basic data analysis.

Data Analysis: is offered at various levels; starting from the simple determination of the transcriptional status of a gene (absent/present) via calculation of significantly up- and downregulated genes, to more sophisticated analyses such as hierarchical clustering, principal component analysis or pathway analysis.

Data Delivery

  • Timeline: 3–4 weeks after receipt of samples (for >50 samples, please inquire)
  • CD-ROM/DVD/external HDD sent to customer includes all original data, as well as the results in TXT format
