Microarray Printing

Our array printing machine is currently broken. The Z-axis arm occasionally does not go up before moving across - with disasterous consequences. The suggested fix is to open the box at the back and check all the wires are securely connected.

Meanwhile here are some instructions I made as a .ppt file:

The machine is home built as per Pat Brown's lab:

The latest version of ArrayMaker can be found on the DeRisi Lab page:

The machine is controlled by a Galil Motion Control card:
