following is a list of instruments in use or in development at the Stanford
DNA Sequencing and Technology Development Center. Each instrument page
contains a description of the instrument, the protocol it executes (if
applicable), as well as performance and usage statistics for instruments
and arrayer instruments were developed in Pat
Brown's lab in the Biochemistry
Department. The ones shown here are replicas we have made for our own
functional analysis work.
All the other instruments
shown (except the Affymetrix CE sequencer) were developed by this
group. For instruments which do not involve patentable technology
we will soon include drawings and parts lists on the instrument
page. For protected technology and software, the Stanford
Technology Licensing Office should be contacted.
Some of these instruments
are now available and supported through Genemachines.
For information call them at 650-508-1634 or e-mail
Images, Quicktime movies,
and drawings and parts lists for the instruments are (or soon will be)
available on the instrument pages.
Currently, drawings are
available for the Plaque Picker, Shaker and Oligo Synthesizer. Others will
soon be made available.
Drawings for the Arrayer
and Scanner are available from Pat
