We compared different hybridization conditions of oligonucleotide-based DNA microarray to acquire optimized and reliable microarray data. Several parameters were evaluated at different hybridization conditions, including signal-to-background (S:B) ratios, signal dynamic range, usable spots, and reproducibility. Statistical analysis showed that better results were obtained when spotted, presynthesized long oligonucleotide arrays were blocked with succinic anhydride and hybridized at 42°C in the presence of 50% formamide.
