Ozone Control for Microarray Processing

Protect Ozone-Sensitive Fluorescent Dyes in the Microarray Workflow

Ozone is a by-product of industrial pollutants that can destroy cyanine and other fluorescent dyes used to label biological samples for microarray analysis. Maintaining low ozone levels during microarray washing, drying and scanning is essential to assay reproducibility.

The NoZone WS Workspace is a benchtop enclosure equipped with an external ozone filtration system that provides a clean, ozone-safe and low light area for microarray processing and scanning. Each filtration system is validated to quickly and reliably maintain ozone levels below 5 parts per billion (ppb).

The NoZone WS Workspace features a hand accessible opening for working inside the enclosure. Use with the Little Dipper Processor or other lab equipment when preparing samples and processing arrays.

  • Protects sensitive fluorescent dyes
  • Eliminates costly re-tests due to ozone damage
  • Sets up easily from pre-assembled panels
  • No filters to replace
  • Ozone Filtration Performance Certificate included
