Cost Structure

Gene 1.1 ST Peg Plates:

There is a $25 charge per sample charge for the 96-peg array. There is a $36 charge per sample charge for the 24-peg array. There is a $44 charge per sample charge for the 16-peg array. One sample goes on one peg array. These costs include sample preparation which involves a cDNA reaction, an IVT reaction to linearly amplify and label the RNA and clean up of the sample.  This is followed by hybridization, washing and scanning of the array with basic data analysis using Expression Console software. In addition, a copy of all files will always be stored here at the facility. The investigator is to provide the Affymetrix peg array, Ambion WT Expression Kit for High Throughput robotics, and Affymetrix Terminal Labeling Kit.

Gene 1.0 ST Arrays:

There is a $325 charge per sample charge which includes the array. One sample goes on one array. These costs include sample preparation which involves a cDNA reaction, an IVT reaction to linearly amplify and label the RNA and clean up of the sample. This is followed by hybridization, washing and scanning of the array with basic data analysis using Expression Console software. In addition, a copy of all files will always be stored here at the facility.

Axiom Genotyping Peg Plates:

There is a $1000 per plate charge for the sample preparation, hybridization wash and scan of the plate.  Each plate consists of 96 arrays.  The investigator is to provide the Axiom 2.0 reagent kit, peg plate and samples.

Expression 3’ IVT Arrays:

There is a $250 charge per sample. One sample goes on one array. These costs include sample preparation which involves a cDNA reaction, an IVT reaction to linearly amplify and label the RNA and clean up of the sample. This is followed by hybridization, washing and scanning of the array with basic data analysis using Expression Console software. In addition, a copy of all files will always be stored here at the facility.  The investigator is to provide the cartridge array.

Mapping Arrays:

There is a $25 charge per array for hybridization, washing and scanning of a SNP genotyping array. The investigator is expected to provide the facility with a prepared hybridization cocktail ready to be put on an array along with the arrays.

Gene Regulation Arrays:

There is a $25 charge per array for hybridization, washing and scanning of a gene regulation array. The investigator is expected to provide the facility with a prepared hybridization cocktail ready to be put on an array.  GeneChip® Tiling Arrays are the most comprehensive array tools available for discovering novel RNA transcripts or mapping sites of protein/DNA interaction in chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments.
