Microarray detection with laser scanning device

ByRalph Beneke

Microarrays are revolutionizing biology and so are the detection instruments required to read Biochips in an automated fashion, providing millions of raw data in a few minutes. Because the quality of the raw image is so critical for accurate microarray quantification, the primary goal when designing a detection system should be to maximize sensitivity, accuracy and reproducibility.
