GeneAtlas personal microarray system
Affymetrix’s GeneAtlas personal microarray system is designed to provide researchers with a complete and affordable system for gene expression analysis.
Affymetrix’s GeneAtlas personal microarray system is designed to provide researchers with a complete and affordable system for gene expression analysis. The system contains a hybridization station, fluidics station, imaging station, computer workstation, control software, external barcode reader, and installation kit. The system also includes workflow driven statistical and pathway analysis software package. The system features a four-array strip that allows researchers to investigate four samples at the same time. According to Affymetrix, the array format provides simplified hybridization because it eliminates the necessity of a hybridization chamber assembly. The system also features robust sample protection and simple array processing with common micro-well based labware. Custom array designs are available through Affymetrix’s MyGeneChip Custom Array Program. The company plans to develop further arrays and applications for the system.
