The Agilent SureScan Microarray Scanner is a state-of-art, laser-induced fluorescence scanner designed to read microarrays printed on standard 1” × 3” slides. The SureScan scanner measures the fluorescence intensity of labeled sample nucleic acid (DNA and RNA) bound to microarrays. Data extraction is handled by the Feature extraction program available on the connected computer. Data analysis can be done with the Gene Spring software.
Scanner capabilities include:
- Scan CGH, CGH+SNP, ChIP-on-chip, DNA methylation, microRNA arrays with dual color and up to 3 microns sensitivity
- Feature extraction software extracts data from Agilent and other company array slides
