Protocol Outline
  1. Dry the glass slide
  2. Prepare Standards
  3. Block array surface
  4. Incubate with Samples and Standards
  5. Incubate with Biotinylated Detection Antibody Cocktail
  6. Incubate with Streptavidin-Conjugated Fluor
  7. Disassemble the glass slide
  8. Scan with a gene microarray laser scanner

For best results, store the entire kit frozen at -20°C upon arrival. Stored frozen, the kit will be stable for at least 6 months which is the duration of the product warranty period. Once thawed, store array slide(s), standard mix, detection antibody cocktail, and Cy3-Conjugated Streptavidin at -20°C and all other reagents undiluted at 4°C for no more than 3 months.

This array, like their other Q-type products, worked well, was easy to use, and provided a lot of data for my samples at a great cost relative to competitors. I successfully ran supernatants from functional engineered bone tissues and cancer cell lines. The data analysis by the manufacturer was quick as always. As someone with expertise in cancer cell and engineered tissue culture, I would highly recommend this product.
