The kits feature:

  • Low RNA input requirements - as little as 50 ng total RNA for a single round of amplification
  • Streamlined workflow - no initial primer annealing or cDNA purification step, and a 1.25-hour second-strand cDNA synthesis time
  • The option to decrease target labeling time to a single day with appropriate inputs of total RNA
  • Fewer reagents needed for entire amplification and labeling process
  • A simple protocol for ease of use, convenience, and a high rate of success
  • Magnetic bead purification for enhanced recovery
  • A complete kit that includes poly-A RNA and hybridization controls

With enhanced performance, fewer required reagents, and a simple protocol, target preparation has never been so easy.

The 3' IVT Express Kit includes:

  • All reagents needed to generate and label aRNA target
  • Poly-A RNA controls and hybridization controls
  • Magnetic bead purification for enhanced recovery
  • Plastic consumables needed to run the assay

The 3' IVT Express Kit is available in 10-reaction and 30-reaction sizes.
The kit can be purchased alone or bundled with popular 3' arrays for additional savings:

Additional products needed to run the complete Affymetrix solution include the GeneChip® Hybridization, Wash, and Stain Kit.

About Poly-A controls

Poly-A controls (lys, phe, thr and dap) monitor the target labeling process from start to finish. They serve as sensitivity indicators of target prep and labeling efficiency. This kit contains four exogenous, pre-mixed, poly-adenylated prokaryotic controls that are spiked directly into RNA samples before target labeling. Their resultant signal intensities on GeneChip Arrays serve as indicators of the labeling reaction efficiency.

The 20X Eukaryotic Hybridization Controls are comprised of a mixture of biotinylated and fragmented cRNA of bioB, bioC, bioD, and cre in staggered concentrations, ready to be added directly to the hybridization cocktail. These controls facilitate monitoring of the hybridization process for troubleshooting. Control Oligo B2 is included to provide alignment signals for image analysis.
