Bead array technologies for genetic disease screening and microbial detection

S.A. Dunbar and S.V. Angeloni,    Luminex Corporation, USA


In recent decades rapid development and utilization of whole genome assay technologies has produced a vast amount of information on the gene expression patterns and genomic sequences of a number of different organisms. However, once a whole genome assay is used to identify key markers, faster and more cost-effective methods are more practical for the analysis of larger numbers of samples. Midplex or mid-density arrays provide a pragmatic solution for high-throughput analysis of hundreds to thousands of samples where only dozens to a few hundred markers need to be followed. This chapter describes ...
