Agrigenomics solutions

Axiom™ Genotyping Solution for agrigenomics provides breeders and researchers with powerful genotyping tools to identify, validate, and screen complex genetic traits in plants or animals.  It includes arrays with genotype-tested content from the Axiom™ Genomic Database or de novo markers that are important to you. The complete solution is comprised of genotyping arrays, reagent kits, a fully automated workflow, and easy-to-use free data analysis tools.

Eureka™ Genotyping Solution for agrigenomics includes next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based assays designed using Eureka myDesign™ or catalog panels. The Eureka genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) assay is a fast workflow, going from extracted DNA to genotypes in as few as two days. The complete solution includes genotyping panels, reagent kits, a fully automated workflow, and easy-to-use data analysis tools.

Axiom™ myDesign™ Arrays and the Bioinformatics Services design team give you the power to develop an effective array for genome-wide association, replication, fine mapping, and candidate gene studies in any species. Use variants you provide or choose SNPs from our Axiom™ Genomic Database, the world's largest resource of genotype-tested SNPs. Fully or semi-customized arrays containing 1,500 to 2.6 million markers can be designed.

Enables the detection of all known microorganisms in a sample with species- and strain-level identification in a single, scalable assay. The proprietary photolithographic arrays help ensure 100% fidelity and consistency across manufacturing batches, with designs available as long as required.

Automated target preparation helps minimize run-to-run variability and the labor burden associated with complex manual pipetting, helping to improve test reproducibility and laboratory efficiency.

A complete solution to data analysis for all Axiom® arrays. From sample and plate QC to automated genotype calling and SNP classification, this easy-to-use software performs analysis in a single step and allows you to view QC results, summary tables, and SNP cluster graphs.

A complete solution to data analysis for all Eureka panels. It manages samples, helps ensure next generation sequencing index combination integrity, and enables genotyping data analysis with a single software package.

Library files are for use by any interested party to process and analyze microarrays. Cartridge library files are intended for use with with the GeneChip hybridization oven and GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G instruments. Array plate library files are intended for use with AGCC 3.x and higher for use with the GeneTitan family of instruments.

Annotation files are for use by any interested party to understand what biological entities are represented on GeneChip-brand arrays. Software developers who are interested in programmatic access and updates to NetAffx information should learn about the NetAffx SDK. Annotation information is stored in a single file for each array type. This information is updated quarterly.

The Affymetrix Research Services Laboratory for microarrays is a high-throughput genotyping facility that offers affordable and fast genotyping services for large-scale, microarray-based studies. The service lab has genotyped more than one million samples and called about 650 billion genotypes, enabling our customers to complete their genotyping studies quickly and affordably.
