We conduct gene analyses and chromosome testing with leading-edge technologies. We offer our know-how for genetic approaches in research or for medical treatment.
Our bio-banking service includes sample collection, anonymization, DNA extraction, and storage management. The samples are managed by anonymization system; each sample is given an anonymous identification code (two-dimensional bar code). Storage temperature of samples is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by an integrated temperature monitoring system. Our banking room requires ID cards and finger vein authentications, and is inaccessible to unauthorized personnel. Further information on bio-banking at Analytical Research Center are:
We evaluate RNA quality in samples (tissue, cell, and total RNA) before conducting gene expression profiling. We are an authorized service provider of Affymetrix, Inc.
Gene Expression Profiling with DNA Microarray
We are entrusted with comprehensive gene expression profiling of various species with Agilent DNA Microarray and Affymetrix GeneChip®. We also conduct comprehensive analyses of miRNA expression.
Gene mutation analyses by PCR
We perform gene mutation analyses for specific genomic regions by PCR. Comparative analyses between tumor tissues (isolated by microdissection from histopathological specimens) and normal tissues are also available. Moreover, we perform genome mutation analyses by direct sequencing.
Gene mutation analyses with DNA Microarray
We also perform genome mutation analyses relating to drug metabolism using Affymetrix DMET™ Plus Array.
DMET™ Plus Array
All of our research and studies are in strict adherence to the laws concerning protection and management of animals with full respect of the standards concerning care and management of test animals, and have been accepted and certified for animal welfare practices.
