Custom design AGILENT microarray for Crops species



The selected chip format is 180000 probes per plex on a 4 plex array coming from AGILENT Technology.


On Crops Agilent Arrays

We will transfer all of our NimbleGen designs which will include, for instance, melon, pea, medicago, rosa and tomato.

A normalization and statistical analysis method has been developed specifically for CATMAv7 and Crops Agilent Arrays by M.L. Martin-Magniette in collaboration with the ’Statistique et Génome’ team from the unit UMR INRA/AgroParisTech MIA 518, Paris, France.


Material to be supplied by users

  • We require a minimum amount of 2 µg of total RNA of perfect quality per array (RNA extraction using columns such as Qiagen RNeasy for example in DEPC treated water and conserved at -80 ° C.
  • Titration by spectrophotometry with OD 260nm/280nm values between 1.9 and 2.1.
  • The RNAs samples will be sent to us by fast transporters and in dry ice.



The total cost : AGILENT array + Agilent chip to check the RNA quality (from 1 to 12 samples) + amplification + labelled cDNA+Various consumables (Ribogreen).

Note : We always perform technical (dye-swap/dye-switch) and at least one biological repetition. Why do we perform two colour arrays instead of one colour arrays ?
