Printing Details

  • Print on ArrayIt SuperAmine slides (SMM-25) with ArrayIt quill type ChipMaker pins (CMP3).
  • Add 10microl 3xSSC 1.5M betaine to the dried PCR product.
  • Spot volumes range from .1 to .9 nl. While spot diameters are approximately 100microm, normally ranging from 90 to 110microm.
  • Spot distance is 180microm center to center.

Post-print processing

  1. Leave slides in a dust free environment over night.
  2. Transfer slides to metal slide racks for baking at 80DegreesC for 1.5 hours.
  3. Prepare 0.2% SDS solution and pour 350ml into each slide container. This will cover the slides sufficiently.
  4. Dip slide holders repeatedly into the SDS solution and allow to soak for 2 minutes on shaker.
  5. Transfer to millipore water for 2 minutes. Repeat water wash one additional time.
  6. Soak slides in boiling water for 2 minutes. without agitation.
  7. Dip in 95% ethanol and spin dry at 500 rpm for 1 minutes.
  8. Store slide in slide box with dessicant at room temperature
