The GeneChip™ Instrument System is a fully integrated platform for conducting your research using GeneChip-brand probe arrays. The GeneChip™ Scanner 3000 7G System allows you to scan next-generation higher-density for SNP, copy number, and expression arrays that can interrogate over 6 million unique sequences.

GeneChip Scanner systems

Combines space-saving and other design improvements with speed, superior performance, and lower scanner-to-scanner variation to dramatically improve throughput and efficiency in your genetic analysis. The GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G also provides enhanced auto-focus and more consistent scanner-to-scanner biological performance to improve data integrity and data sharing between researchers.

Leverages proven Affymetrix™ GeneChip technology and utilizes the Genome-Wide Human SNP Nsp/Sty Assay Kit 5.0/6.0. The new SNP Array 6.0 features 1.8 million genetic markers, including more than 906,600 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and more than 946,000 probes for the detection of copy number variation.

Leverages proven Affymetrix GeneChip technology combined with MIP assay technology. This innovative assay addresses the challenges of a targeted approach by offering flexible multiplexing from 3,000 to 20,000 SNPs per individual assay, superior conversion rates from database SNPs to functioning assays, and high-value SNP content. The Affymetrix GeneChip Scanner 3000 TG System enables the highest level of multiplexing that is commercially available.


The GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G combines advanced design improvements with high-resolution scanning and automation to dramatically improve efficiency in gene expression and genetic analysis applications. When used with the GeneChip™ AutoLoader, the GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G provides complete walk-away freedom for scanning your arrays. The GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G fits easily into a benchtop environment. Its solid-state laser eliminates the need for an external laser power supply or a special cooling system under the bench.

The superior performance and enhanced capabilities of the GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G offer more accurate gridding and more consistent scanner-to-scanner performance, improving data integrity and data sharing between researchers.
