We present here an online system to handle Affymetrix sample submission and tracking, job management and lab processing. Many current microarray database solutions tend to focus on post sample-processing analysis. GenomeLIMS allows recording of all sample processing steps, there are no expression data analysis functions.
When there is a need to quickly analyze samples using a number of different PCR assays, it is likely that optimal conditions for each assay will not be the same. First, different assays often will require different annealing temperatures for their primers. In addition, amplicons may be designed to be of different lengths and therefore require varying durations of the extension step.READ MORE
