GenArraytion Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the turn around time on shipment of MultiFLEX BioAssays®?

Each MultiFLEX BioAssay, whether it be bead based or real time, can be shipped to you in as little as 3 business days from purchase.  Manufacturing times may vary based on target availability. 

 

What is the turn around time on GenArraytion Assay Development?

GenArraytion’s novel methods of research allow for rapid assay development.  GenArraytion assays have been completely developed in as little as three weeks.  Turn around time is directly dependent on the complexity of the assay being developed and the organism(s)/genes(s) being targeted.

 

What quality controls do you employ on your manufacturing laboratory?

For every assay batch manufactured, each primer pair and probe are tested in an individual assay to ensure product amplification and detection.  For every custom MultiFLEX BioAssay, the oligonucleotides to be shipped are all tested in multiplex to ensure target specificity.   Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) is used as our primary source of custom oligonucleotide synthesis prior to assay formulation.  Their quality control process for each custom synthesis can be found here.

 

How sensitive are your assays?

Sensitivity is a function of sample preparation, target(s), platform, and plexity of the experiment.  Our MultiFLEX Bioassays routinely achieve detection of less than ten genomic copies in singleplex or multiplex for both platform types.  Your results may vary.
