Description

Medium throughput SNP array device, where 4 beadchips can be scanned/loaded simultaneously. The amount of samples that can be loaded is dependent on the assay/beadchip.

Principle

Probes specific for a target of interest are plotted on beads (1 target/bead). The beads on its turn are deposited in wells (1 bead/well) of a silica-based array/wafer, the so-called BeadChip. Targets are detected/genotyped following single base extension (base-specific fluorescent tag).

Sponsor / owner

This device was acquired by the CMG of the UZ Brussel.
