Experimental Design (Full Service)

Ambion's Array Services offers much more than what a typical core laboratory can. It is a complete service microarray information group, which aims to maximize the quantity and quality of information that can be obtained from a microarray experiment. The Array Services' staff of experienced biologists, statisticians, and bioinformatics specialists will work with you to organize the most effective and economical approach to accomplish your experimental goals by:

Helping to formulate a concise experimental question

Setting up an experimental design that includes biological and analytical perspectives

Replication for efficient analysis
Selection of controls
Cost efficacy: fewest arrays for the most information

Recommending statistical analyses to meet your goals

Target aRNA Preparation

Ambion can prepare aRNA samples starting from both eukaryotic and prokaryotic RNA by using the best linear RNA amplification product on the market: MessageAmp II aRNA Amplification Kit.

Ambion Services uses the MessageAmp II Kit, which allows reproducible amplification from small total RNA samples:

>500 ngone round of amplification

<500 ngtwo rounds of amplification

All amplified samples are then inspected on an Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer to confirm quality (i.e. size and yield).


All reagents (hybridization and washes) pass strict quality control standards

Data Analysis
Standard Service

Full report for each array with complete process QC information

Background/Noise Values

Scaling Factor

Percent Present Calls

3'/5' Ratios of Housekeeping Genes

Full Service

Includes Standard Service, plus
Comprehensive Data Analysis:

Data Normalization

Hypothesis Testing

Publication Quality Figures


Fully Annotated Gene Lists

Protocols for all procedures are tightly regulated in compliance with ISO standards.
