Microarray Project and Sample Submission Requirements

Project Requirements

All requests for scientific and analytical work must be submitted through CSAS.  Please contact Dr. Xiaolin Wu for more information regarding submitting requests, costs, and additional sources of funding for your project.

Sample Requirements

The table below summarizes the sample requirements for efficient and reliable processing of your samples.  We recommend that samples be quantified via Nanodrop prior to normalization and shipment to Laboratory of Molecular Technology.  Please ship RNA samples on dry ice.
