The Applied Biosystems Expression Array System is a highly sensitive gene expression detection system. The system detects more genes and achieves more than a 10-fold increase in sensitivity while using less sample for the detection of genes expressed at very low levels compared with conventional fluorescent microarrays. The system uses a chemiluminescence-detection instrument, software, and chemistries to deliver unambiguous gene results that are highly sensitive and reproducible.
The PCR process and the 5' nuclease detection process are covered by patents owned by Roche Molecular System, Inc. and F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd ("Roche"). Performing services using these patented processes may require additional licenses from Applied Biosystems or Roche.
