My laboratory provides genomic analysis resources to help P&G scientists understand the molecular basis of new products under development in across the company. A few years ago we selected the Illumina HT12 BeadChip system for performing high throughput gene expression analysis on cells treated with specific compounds. My lab currently analyzes gene expression patterns from up to 250 samples in a week and will likely double this number in the near future.
When we became interested in automating the multitude of manual post-hybridization washing and staining steps for the BeadChip system, we were pleased to discover the Little Dipper Processor from SciGene for automating this workflow...We have never encountered a problem in its operation despite being used several times each week by three different operators. Our technicians love the instrument since it frees them up to perform other lab tasks as the chips are being processed.
