Genisphere's 3DNA™ Expression Array Detection Kit reagents
The ability to label nucleic acids with a variety of tagged molecules has led to astonishing advances in molecular biology. Labeled DNA, RNA, and oligonucleotide probes have made possible techniques like the historic Southern blot, the northern blot, and related dot/slot-blotting procedures, in addition to in situ hybridization studies and colony and plaque lifts. Recently, labeled cDNA probes have become an integral part of the gene expression analysis advances empowered by gene arrays. Beginning with the enzymatic incorporation of radioactivity and eventually employing nonisotopic alternatives, labeling methods and kits have evolved into a host of products and creative technologies that offer some powerful tools to the life scientist.


Enzymatic Labeling Techniques

Enzymatic labeling techniques are the traditional way to label nucleic acids, although direct labeling techniques are gaining...
