Best in class array based expression analysis combined with our long-term service experience!
Our Eurofins Genomics Laboratory AROS in Denmark has been an Authorized Service Provider for all Affymetrix assays since 2004. Our close collaboration with Affymetrix ensures that we always have direct access, when a project is faced with specific challenges.
The Affymetrix expression arrays are used for a wide application range. Affymetrix is best in class and offers pre-designed arrays for various species.
Our offer includes the processing and data analysis of both cartridge-based and Gene Titan peg array-based analyses for many different organisms:
- Zebra fish
- And many more
Strict confidentiality is ensured by every project. The high quality of our service is overseen by a professional quality management team.
Receive high-quality and high sensitive genetic analyses using the Affymetrix leading technology for expression studies.
Expression is the measurement of the activity of thousands of genes at once, to create a global picture of cellular function. These profiles can, for example, distinguish between cells that are actively dividing or show how the cells react to a particular treatment.
The Affymetrix expression arrays are used for a wide application range:
- Gene regulation analysis
- Whole-transcript expression analysis and profiling
- 3’ IVT expressionanalysis
- miRNA analysis
Affymetrix has pioneered expression microarray technology by producing the first “gold standard” for whole genome transcriptomics (U133plus2.0). Affymetrix offers a range of whole transcript arrays for human and model organisms. The different arrays can detect a variety of transcript isoforms:
- Presumed standard transcripts
- Transcripts with undefined 3’ end
- Non-polyadenylated messages
- Truncated transcripts
- Alternate polyadenylation sites
- Degraded samples
- Genomic deletions
- Alternative splicing
- Alternative 5’ start site
Most commonly used arrays:
Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array: First and most comprehensive whole human genome expression array. The majority of sequence clusters were created from the UniGene database (Build 133, April 20, 2001). There are 9,921 new probe sets representing approximately 6,500 new genes selected from GenBank, dbEST, and RefSeq.
Human Gene 2.0 (or 1.0) ST Array: The whole-transcript coverage of these arrays provides the most accurate, sensitive and comprehensive measurement of protein coding and long intergenic non-coding RNA transcripts. This design provides a complete expression profile of mRNA as well as the intermediary lincRNA transcripts that impact the mRNA expression profile.
Human Transcriptome Array 2.0: These arrays give the ability to go beyond gene-level expression profiling by providing the coverage and accuracy required to detect all known transcript isoforms produced by a gene.
GeneChip® miRNA 4.0 Array: GeneChip® miRNA Arrays are powerful tools for studying the role of small non-coding RNA (miRNA, snoRNA, and scaRNA) and their importance in cancer and other diseases.
Expression arrays are also available for various other species like mouse, rat, bovine, chicken, canine, maize, porcine, rice, wheat, yeast and many more.
