GeneAtlas System is a complete microarray solution for measuring whole-genome expression.
The GeneAtlas Instrument is a modular microarray system for processing four arrays in parallel. Each of the four arrays are attached to pegs and arranged on a single strip. The GeneAtlas System can run about two strips per day.
Affymetrix designed the GeneAtlas Imaging Station and Fluidics Station to assist processing samples. After completing target preparation, you then perform the hybridization, washing and staining and imaging processes of the workflow on separate modular components, i.e., the Fluidics Station and Imaging Station, which are connected to a single computer workstation.
The simple yet elegant design of the fluidics station moves the arrays to the liquids, rather than moving liquids to the arrays. This novel approach virtually eliminates user maintenance for a highly robust system.
Setup is simple. Simply pipet the wash and stain reagents into the appropriate micro-wells, place the trays on the deck of the fluidics station, and press start. The entire setup process takes approximately five minutes.
A high-intensity LED excitation source and fast illumination optics deliver efficient, uniform illumination to the array, optimizing exposure time to minimize photo-bleaching effects.
The imaging station, with custom-designed optics, CCD camera, and stable excitation source, not only captures images with ideal clarity to deliver highly precise analyses, but also delivers uniform and reproducible data to support standardization of microarray information within and across studies and labs.
Scan the array strip barcode. The application enters the names into the computer workstation. Add target samples to the hybridization tray and insert the array strip into the hybridization tray.
