Development and use of array materials with higher signal-to-noise ratios will greatly improve the capability of scanning methods to detect specifically fluorescence that represents complementary hybridization over the fluorescent background. Image processin? is a probleinatic area. , 1999; Wu, 2001). Additional misreading of theresults during scanning and visualization processes may occur when foreign organic particles are present on the array, such as dust, clothing fibers, skin, or oil from direct human contact; and when the solid support material of the array has an inherent fluorescence similar to that of the labeling dyes (Schermer, 1999).
Piezoelectric capillary jets are thought to be superior as efficient and accurate spotters; however, the need to keep the capillary nozzle full with a larger volume of the biological sample results in the use of a greater amount of polynucleotide probe material in the manufacture of a microarray than when other types of spotters are used. Because of this characteristic, piezoelectric capillary jet spotters are best suited to microarray production of a large number of spots of the same material.
The photons emitted by the excited dye are collected at a detector, which measures and records their levels, converting the measurements to electrical signals. A confocal microscope or charge-coupled device that records the intensity of the photons is used as the scanning detector. , 2000). Cyanine 3 (Cy3) and cyanine 5 (Cy5) are fluorescent dyes that are commonly used in this technology because their emission spectra are well separated, providing a low probability of crosstalk. Imagers commonly use a grid over the array to associate the signal from each spot with its location on the array, and thereby with its base-pairing sequence identification.
