Low Density Microarrays to be Phased Out
EcoArray will be replacing our low density microarrays with high-density formats this summer. This change parallels the course that Agilent Technologies has announced: that it will cease printing the low density microarrays (e.g., the 2 x 11K feature and 1 x 22K feature formats) by the summer 2007. The fathead minnow microarray will be available in two high density formats. The FHM 4-pack (4 arrays on one glass slide) will offer approximately 22,000 genes. The new FHM 8-pack (8 arrays on one glass slide) will be reduced to the best-annotated 15,000 genes and will cost less than $100 per array for academics.
