There have been some changes in Illumina BeadArray labeling -- please read this carefully.
This form must be filled out completely before we can accept any samples. Once this form has been filled out, please coordinate with Mila Angert to drop off samples.
The most critical aspect of any microarray experiment is the quality of the RNA and failed microarray experiments due to problems with RNA quality is something that BIOGEM wishes to avoid. Therefore we require that the RNA is prepared with the RNeasy kit from Qiagen. This ensures high quality RNA that will not contain contaminants that interfere with enzymatic reactions.
In addition to the tubes of RNA supplied for labeling, please provide a separate aliquot for Agilent Bioanalyzer analysis. Label these tubes with an "A" (denoting they are for Agilent analysis).
Label the labeling aliquot tubes with these information:
RNA quality will be checked at the facility. If low quality is suspected or the RNA fails to meet our criteria, the experiment will be stopped. Please contact Mila Angert if you have any questions or concerns about the integrity of your RNA samples.
