Sample Preparation

Genetic material such as RNA and DNA is isolated and purified from a sample source (tissue, cell culture, sorted cells, etc).  If the purified sample material meets microarray quantity and quality standards, the sample will advance to become microarray sample input. 


To ensure the best possible results for a microarray study, there are strict sample requirements surrounding sample isolation, purification, and quantity/quality characteristics.  Navigate to topic-specific information from links below.
