Axiom myDesign Genotyping Arrays

Axiom myDesign arrays allow flexible access to custom genotyping for small and large studies. They are supported by a world-class design team for fast design and delivery. With Axiom myDesign Genotyping Arrays, you can create fully or semi-customizable genotyping arrays for agrigenomics and human genotyping applications. Based on the universal workflow of the Axiom Genotyping Solution, Axiom myDesign Arrays offer unprecedented scale and flexibility to design the most optimal array for your species of interest.  Fully or semi-customized arrays containing 300 to 2.6 million markers can be designed and available in as few as 6 weeks after SNP lockdown.

Consortia members interested in developing a new array can request a design consultation by contacting our chip design team at Bioinformatics_Services@affymetrix.com.

Human genotyping research applications

Axiom myDesign Arrays offer superior scale and flexibility to design the most optimal array for your disease and population studies involving genome-wide association, replication, fine mapping, and candidate gene studies. Include markers of your choosing or select markers from the Axiom Genomic Database, which contains over 10 million high-performance genotype-tested (biologically and technically validated) annotated common and rare variants. Proprietary imputation-based SNP selection algorithms can be used to design population-optimized GWAS marker modules that deliver high genomic coverage and accuracy.

Agrigenomics genotyping applications

Flexible optimized solutions provide breeders and researchers with powerful and affordable genotyping tools to identify, validate, and routinely screen complex genetic traits for leveraging the highest economic value of the herd or plant. Our portfolio of robust, highly reproducible, and scalable products facilitates marker-assisted selection, genome-wide association studies, quantitative trait loci analyses, parentage, and traceability, all of which fast track your genomic selection programs. Customize your genotyping array or panel with us for any high throughput industrial application with confidence that all your markers of interest can be targeted and manufactured on the custom array or panel.

Axiom myDesign Custom Arrays feature:

  • Low minimums and fast delivery—custom arrays for as few as 480 samples; small repeat orders at attractive prices. Axiom myDesign custom arrays are manufactured and delivered within four to six weeks.
  • Flexible content—fully customizable panels focused on your SNPs of interest; multiple species on one array supported with no restrictions on number of markers per species
  • Consistent supply with No SNPs dropped—every SNP is manufactured with a high degree of precision using photolithographic templates. This helps ensure identical SNP content at any time and for as long as your research necessitates.
  • More marker selection freedom—interfering SNPs can be as close as 10 bases from candidate SNPs
