- Can I use glycogen as a carrier during my RNA extraction for microarray analysis?
- Why is it not necessary to run a globin reduction when using the WT assays?
- Will high amounts of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) within a sample cause random primer amplification?
- Can the input material be polyA RNA or mRNA instead of total RNA?
- What are the gDNA requirements for the Axiom™ 2.0 assay?
- What happens if the hybridization time is extended beyond 16 hours?
- Can results from different laboratories and different times be compared with each other directly and how do you control the variables in this type of experiment?
- I have observed on occasion that multiple _at probe sets are mapped to the same gene but give different expression results. How do I reconcile the difference?
