New Array Advice Tip for the hybridisation of arrays with the labelled target

Kicki tip




Washing should be performed on a magnetic stirrer producing a vortex in the wash buffers. Setting the stirring platform so that the rotation is just starting to produce a vortex will ensure there is good mixing of the wash solutions over the surface of the slides. Also, make sure the mixing is not too vigorous otherwise there is a risk the slides will be disturbed or the stirrer bar will jump and hit the slide surface.
