HTPU microarray services
Providing insights into the genetic and molecular basis of disease
The MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine/Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre houses cutting edge protein, antibody and transcriptomic microarray facilities for the analysis of complex signalling pathways and secreted factors (e.g. chemokines/cytokines) across multiple pre-clinical and clinical sample types. Our facility brings together industry leading platforms, like the high throughput Quanterix-2470-microarrayer, Innopsys 710 infra-red microarray scanner, Zeptosens RPPA system, and NanoString.
The technologies we offer in this facility are
- Reverse Phase Protein Arrays
- Forward Phase Antibody Microarrays
Each microarray platform enables rapid and robust quantification of biomarkers at transcriptomic and post-translational pathway levels across multiple sample sets. Study size can be scaled to the needs of the experiment.
