Communication and power cables.
Configuration and Setup:
Pixel resolution: Adjustable from 2.5 - 100 um
Barcode reading: Integrated hardware barcode reader; all common 1D and 2D barcodes
Excitation: 4 lasers (all internal); 488 nm, 532 nm, 594 nm, 635 nm
Sample type: Standard microscope slides (1x3in or 25x75mm)
Power supply: 110/220V universal
This GenePix 4400A is configured with a 2.5 um per pixel maximum scanning resolution, all four available lasers, and four extra emission-wavelength filters (8 total).
These options allow the systems to detect a wide variety of fluorophores.
Coupled with GenePix Pro Microarray Image Analysis Software and Acuity Microarray Informatics Software, this GenePix 4400a system provide powerful, flexible, and easy to use solution for the acquisition and analysis of data from all types of arrays, including nucleic acids, proteins, tissues, and cells.
The video starts with a general overview of the GenePix 4400A and the Dell Latitude before starting the GenePix Pro 7.2 software.
The software starts, it checks the calibration, and does a power check of the lasers.
We then insert a test slide and start a scan with the 635nm laser and 2.5um scan resolution.
We cut a couple times to shorten the length of the video. Next we zoom in on the scan to see the scan resolution target boxes.
The width of one line inside the box corresponds to the label next to it. As you can see the lines in the 2.5um box are one pixel wide.
Finaly we look around the rear of the MicroArray Scanner to view the tags.

MDC Molecular Devices Microarray Scanner GenePix 4400A w/ 4 Lasers
The Molecular Devices GenePix 4400A Scanners from Molecular Devices offer maximum imaging quality with optimal resolution in highly configurable platforms. Configurations include 5гm or 2.5um per-pixel maximum scanning resolution, choices of up to four lasers for excitation, and sixteen emission-wavelength filters. These options allow the systems to detect a wide variety of fluorophores. Coupled with GenePix Pro Microarray Image Analysis Software and Acuity Microarray Informatics Software, the GenePix Systems provide powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use solutions for the acquisition and analysis of data from all types of arrays, including nucleic acids, proteins, tissues, and cells.
- Upgrade for the Future: While the GenePix 4400A Microarray Scanner can be upgraded to 2.5 micron per pixel resolution at any time. So you have the option to match the scanner resolution as your microarray research requirements advance.
- Full Flexibility in Choosing Dyes: With up to four internal solid-state diode and gas lasers, the scanner is a remarkably compact bench-top unit. The laser flexibility and choice of up to 12 user-accessible emission filters allow you to select your dyes from a broad variety of fluorophores for your assay (CyTM3 and CyTM5 dyes, Fluorescein, GFP, Texas Red, Alexa Fluor dyes, or quantum dots.
- Trust your Microarray Signals: with outstanding positional performance and uniformity, the Molecular Devices GenePix 4400 Microarray Scanner allowы you to perform the most demanding application, like latest generation NimbleGen arrays or array CGH experiments. Specified and tested for a field uniformity of +/- 2%, these scanners resolve a spatial frequency of 200 line pairs per millimeter (LPPM), and feature a contrast ratio (CTF) of least 50% at the highest resolution.
Proteomics: Although the analysis of the full proteome has not yet been achieved, rapid progress is being made with microarrays in the field of proteomics. Proteomes exhibit large and dynamic complexity; the number for distinct proteins in mammals will certainly exceed the number of genes, requiring the right technology to be in place for the analysis.
Reverse Phase Arrays
Genomics: Directed at the genome sequence itself, microarrays have been used to identify novel genes, binding sites of transcription factors, changes in DNA copy number, and variations from a baseline sequence, such as in emerging strains of pathogens or complex mutations in disease-causing human genes.
SNP genotyping arrays
Arrayed comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) arrays
Transcriptomics: The use of high-density microarrays has impacted the measurement of transcript levels to study complex diseases. With the latest development of microarray technology, it is now possible to quantify transcript levels globally and to integrate such data with information relating to disease. Microarrays based transcriptomics enables mapping a critical genomic region for a disease using affected and unaffected individuals and then pinpointing the responsible gene by identifying differentially expressed genes in the critical region.
Gene expression arrays
RNA interference (RNAi) arrays
MicroRNA (miRNA) arrays
Epigenomics: The gene carries the basic unit of information, but this information has an impact only once it is properly programmed by the epigenome. The DNA methylation pattern is cell type specific and correlates with chromatin structure. DNA microarrays are being utilized to identify methylation patterns, and the GenePix automation solution allows the researcher to identify these patterns faster.
DNA methylation arrays
Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) arrays
