DNA microarray

[¦dē¦en¦ā ′mī·krō·ə‚rā]
(cell and molecular biology)
A microscopic spot containing identical single-stranded polymeric molecules of deoxyribonucleotides (DNAs), usually oligonucleotides or complementary DNAs, attached to a solid support (such as a membrane, a polymer, or glass) used to simultaneously analyze the expression levels of the corresponding genes.

These microarrays, which include DNA microarrays, protein microarrays, tissue microarrays, low complexity microarrays and carbohydrate microarrays, are excellent tools for gene expression profiling, biomarker profiling and diagnostics.
Fields: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of software and databases (including software/database market brands or in-house) by field (biotechnology, chemicals, clinical or hospital, defence, diagnostics, energy, environmental, food and drink, forensics, geology, government, healthcare, natural products, pharmaceuticals, research institutes, security and university) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.
Although gene expression analysis, of which Affymetrix estimates it holds a 75%-80% share of the market, remains the most popular application for DNA microarrays, a new set of applications are rapidly gaining ground and spurring growth.
