Microarray Technologies


The Microarray Technologies Core Facility is a shared institutional resource providing KI investigators with integrated facilities for microarray hybridization, scanning, processing and image analysis as well as microarray validation tools including RNA quality assessment and real time PCR. In addition, the Microarray Technologies Core Facility now supports next-generation sequencing sample preparation as well as additional genomic technologies.

Services include:

  • Affymetrix microarray labeling, hybridization and scanning
  • Agilent microarray labeling, hybridization and scanning
  • Illumina sequencing sample preparation
  • Real-Time PCR using the Fluidigm BioMark and Roche LC480s
  • DNA, RNA and Protein quantification

Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. Priority access is given to KI members, NCI-funded research projects and other contributing user groups in recognition of funding support. In special circumstances, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Facility Director, Stuart Levine).

Additional information is available on the Microarray Technologies Facility's website.


The Microarray Technologies Core is supported in part by funding provided to the Koch Institute from a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant.
