Microarray Hybridization Cassette AHC4X24


Price: $645.00
Item Number: AHC4X24
Arrayit AHC4X24 Hybridization Cassettes enable up to 96 hybridization or protein microarray reactions in a 3 x 8 x 4 format. AHC4X24 holds 4 standard glass substrate slides (1 x 25 x 76 mm) and uses a silicone gasket to create 96 individual reaction areas for up to 96 simultaneous microarray reactions. This hybridization cassette utilizes a compression-fit silicone gasket to demarcate the microarray reaction areas, eliminating the need for contaminating adhesives and inks. The 7.5 mm x 6.5 mm reaction areas are configured at 9 mm center-to-center spacing in the 3 x 8 x 4 format for compatibility with all multi-channel pipettes and automated liquid handling robots and workstations. AHC4X24 is precision-machined from durable, flat high-grade aluminum to ensure proper alignment and leak-proof fit. The top portion of the cassette is engraved with a 1-12 number panel across the top and an A-H letter panel down the left side for unambiguous identification of each of the 96 reaction wells. Each AHC4X24 cassette includes an anodized aluminum top and bottom, square cassette wells, SBS compliant top and bottom, a 3 x 8 x 4 well silicone gasket and no septa mat for sealing the wells during use. Wells can be sealed with adhesive foil seals (Cat. MPAFS) if necessary.

hybridization-microarray
Arrayit offers innovative hardware solutions for creating multi-well microarrays on a single glass substrate slide. Reaction cassettes containing 8, 16, 24, 48 or 96 wells utilize silicone gaskets to create individual reaction wells encompassing the printed microarrays. The upper portion of the Hybridization Cassette allows the introduction of individual samples, making these cassettes ideal for DNA and protein microarray research and diagnostics.

Figure 1A.The AHC1X24 has 7.5 x 6.5 mm wells spaced at 9 mm centers in a 3 x 8 format for easy loading with multi-channel pipettes and automation systems. Note that the proper orientation fits the wide portion of the gasket against the hardware and the thin portion against the glass substrate slide.

Figure 1B.The AHC1X16 has 7.5 x 7.5 mm wells spaced at 9 mm centers in a 2 x 8 format for easy loading with multi-channel pipettes and automation systems. Note that the proper orientation fits the wide portion of the gasket against the hardware and the thin portion against the glass substrate slide.

Use these spacing coordinates to program the microarrayer prior to printing the 3x8 (1x24) or 2x8 (1x16) microarray patterns required to utilize the multi-well Hybridization Cassettes. Use the SpotBot and NanoPrint Microarrayer to simplify the microarray manufacturing using these formats. NOTE! Contact Arrayit for other gaskets with larger reaction areas!

Figure 3. Hybridization Cassette 4x16 (Catalog ID AHC4X16) is identical to Hybridization Cassette 1x16 except that it contains four identical units allowing the use of four glass substrate slide microarrays. The Hybridization Cassette 4x16 has a 7.5 x 7.5 mm well size set at 9 mm centers in four identical 2x8 units. Well openings in the top portion of the Hybridization Cassette (shown here) are 5.5 x 5.5 mm. Requires the use of four individual silicon gaskets (Catalog ID GAHC1x16) to demarcate the individual wells, and the four gaskets are included with the purchase of the AHC4x16 product. Easily sealed with foil seals to prevent evaporation.

Figure 4. Hybridization Cassette 4x24 (Cat. AHC4X24) is identical to AHC1x24 except that it contains four identical units, allowing the use of four glass substrate slides. AHC4x24 has a 7.5 x 6.5 mm well size set at 9 mm centers in four identical 3x8 units. Well openings in the top portion of the cassette are 5.5 x 5.5 mm. The AHC4x24 equires the use of a silicone gasket (Cat. GAHC4x24) to demarcate the individual wells. The GAHC4x24 is included with the purchase of the AHC4x24 product. The top of the cassette is easily sealed with foil seals to prevent evaporation.

Use Replacement Gasket GAHC1x16 (upper left) with Hybridization Cassette AHC1x16, Replacement Gasket GAHC1x24 (upper right) with Hybridization Cassette AHC1x24, Replacement Gasket GAHC1x16 four each (lower left) with Hybridization Cassette AHC4x16, and one Replacement Gasket GAHC4x24 (lower right) with Hybridization Cassette AHC4x24. To prevent leakage during use, gaskets must be used in the proper orientation with the wide portion placed against the hybridization cassette top and the thin portion placed against the glass substrate slide. Note: Arrayit offers a variety of gaskets with larger reaction areas.
