|Description|| The LS series of laser scanners is the starting point of the Tecan Gene Expression Suite solution.|
Gene expression analysis, SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) analysis and other requirements essential to the advancement of research in the post-genomics era are giving rise to novel microarray formats and sizes. These arrays call for highly flexible scanning technology that allows researchers to automatically scan many different samples on the same equipment without having to switch scanners or make extensive adjustments to a single scanner every time the format type or size changes.
An example of this integrated scanning flexibility is Tecan's new LS Series of laser scanners, which can operate up to 4 excitation lasers and 28 emission filters. In addition to the standard glass array, they can be used to scan a wide range of biochip/microarray substrates, such as membrane arrays, gel on glass, etc., up to the size of microplates. To date, microarrays using these substrates could not be properly scanned with commercial scanners available on the market. The inherent flexibility of the Tecan scanners provides researchers with a useful tool to experiment with different array formats, including new protein and tissue arrays.
