Array

An array is a physical array which corresponds to some array design. There are three types of information that can be captured about individual arrays and array production process. An individual array can have deviations from the design, either zone defects (e.g., a whole zone of spots is shifted) or individual feature defects. An array group can consist of more than one array printed on the same slide, and fiducials (markings on the surface of the slide that can be used to identify arrays' origins) can be printed to facilitate feature detection software accuracy. Array manufacture information also can refer to more than one individual array (sometimes referred to as an array batch), and it can contain protocol information (how the arrays were manufactured) as well as some limited LIMS information (what was printed on the array, on a feature-by-feature basis).
