almaZen System© is the only currently available that assists researchers in organizing, managing and analyzing the large number of biological samples involved in a typical DNA array experiment.
The system is bioalma’s answer to the problem of management of the thousands of clones involved in the fabrication of a DNA microarray. The system incorporates a unique protocol, that allows storage of any type of information on a clone (accession numbers, identifiers, descriptions, images, text files, documents...) The accessing to the functional description of the clones and the recording of any incidences are trivial tasks with almaZen.
The system is oriented towards microtiter plates and includes several tools for storing, manipulating and annotating all relevant information relative to the sequences to be incorporated within the DNA microarray. Thanks to almaZen, identification of each spot on the microarray and review of all manipulations from its entry into the laboratory are easy and intuitive.
An important advantage of almaZen is that is a completely web-browser based application, with no software installation required on the client computer. A single almaZen license serves for an unlimited number of users!
