Researchers will want to consider issues such as specificity and efficiency of hybridization, and accuracy and reproducibility of resulting gene transcript expression levels when assessing the advantages and disadvantages of using oligo arrays versus cDNA arrays. Probe oligos may be more accessible for hybridization than the probe cDNA strands, due to their much shorter chains with single terminal points for attachment to the slide or chip. Another advantage of oligos is their use to detect a subregion of a gene, which is a valuable tool when there is a “family” of a gene with a high similarity of sequence.
Scanners that autoinate the sensitivity adjustments are beneficial. The use of a confocal scanner will also decrease the recorded fluorescent noise by controlling the depth of focus used i n scanning the true signals of hybridization while reducing the capture of background Huorcscence.

With a shorter oligo, a region that is different within the family can be detected. Additionally, having uniform lengths for the oligo probes enhances the chance of finding optimal hybridization, and it is easier to engineer. Single strands of cDNA must be spotted onto the array as complete molecules in order to promote fixation to the surface and subsequent accurate hybridization (Sinclair, 1999); however, one spot on this type of array may be sufficient to identify a specific gene transcript.
