GA-007 Sheared Salmon Sperm DNA 5 x 1 ml @ 10 mg/ml
Sheared Salmon Sperm DNA is highly purified and optimized for use during the pre-hybridization and hybridization stages of DNA microarray analyses to minimize background and non-specific signals and to increase signal to noise ratios. The solution is provided at a concentration of 10 mg/ml with DNA fragment sizes ranging between 500 and 2000 bp. A 1:100 dilution (0.1 mg/ml final concentration) is recommended for preparing pre-hybridization and hybridization solutions.

Brief Protocol
A. For use with SABiosciences nylon GEArray® Q and S Series Kits:
  1. Follow the instructions provided in the GEArray® Q and S Series Kits User Manuals for all steps in this protocol.
  2. Boil the Sheared Salmon Sperm DNA at 100 ºC for 5 minutes and immediately chill on ice.
  3. Freshly prepare only as much GEAprehyb as needed each day (3 ml per nylon GEArray®).
  4. Add the Sheared Salmon Sperm DNA to GEAhyb Hybridization Solution (Catalog Number GEA9905100 or H-01) at a final concentration of 0.1 mg/ml. Mix well before starting the pre-hybridization.
  5. Background signal will be minimal if the probe synthesis reaction, hybridization, washing and detection steps were performed correctly.
B. For use with other microarray systems:

Follow the recommendations provided by the microarray manufacturer for using sheared salmon sperm DNA.
