Microarray Service

Image of microarrayMicroarray technology is a powerful modern genomics tool for analysis of the genome, epigenome, transcriptome, exome, microRNAome or regulome of organisms - humans, animals, model organisms, microorganisms and plants – at the level of the cell, tissue or whole organism.

The Aberdeen Microarray Facility, established in 2002 within a purpose built, state-of-the-art facility within the Institute of Medical Sciences, now forms an integral part of the Centre for Genome Enabled Biology and Medicine (CGEBM), a new integrative centre for Genomics in Aberdeen.

The facility provides tools for sample preparation, stringent quality control and analysis on the Affymetrix microarray platform. We can provide a service from initial extraction of the relevant biomaterial from your sample of interest, to QC of the final dataset. Since inception, we have supported a diverse range of projects using cells, clinical specimens, insects, plants or animal tissues, both with faculty and staff of the University of Aberdeen and with external institutes and organisations.

Please browse our site for details on access, charges, protocols, training and other key aspects of the facility. We are always happy to discuss elements of experimental design or other project considerations prior to grant submission or project commencement.

Initial enquiries can be made to Dr Elaina Collie-Duguid, CGEBM Manager.
