Researchers worldwide are advancing population genomics studies in focused ethnic or geographic populations to reveal new insights into the interplay between genotype regarding the genetics of disease and lifestyle factors. With our microarray suite of software solutions, you can establish biological relevance through data analysis, mining, and management solutions.
Axiom Analysis Suite Software integrates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping, insertion/deletion (indel) detection, multiallele analysis, and off-target variant (OTV) calling of simple and complex genomes as well as copy number detection in an easy-to-use graphical interface.
The software automates Axiom genotyping best-practices workflow to offer accurate results in a single step for export in PLINK, VCF, or TXT formats. Discover and extract copy number information with newly added visualization capabilities.
Axiom Analysis Suite 5.2 software provides all the capabilities of previous Axiom Analysis Suite versions but includes the following:
Download the latest version of the Axiom Analysis Suite software below and install by following the instructions in the Axiom Analysis Suite User Guide. This version is compatible with Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) Professional operating systems and Quad Core 2.83 GHz systems with a recommended 32 GB RAM. In addition, we recommend a minimum of 150 GB of free space on the C drive to run an analysis. The software cannot be used to analyze data from the Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 or any other legacy Affymetrix genotyping arrays.

This software package enables analysis of the CEL files upon scan completion of an Axiom array plate on the GeneTitan MC instrument without user intervention.
Upon completion of plate scanning, a notification is sent to the Application Server Core and sample files are automatically uploaded to a designated folder. The Core alerts the Automated Axiom Analysis Software that CEL files are available for analysis. Automated Axiom then runs the analysis based on the default workflow that has been pre-selected for that specific array type. The results are stored in an Axiom Analysis Suite v5.0 or higher batch folder.
This software package enables creation of SNP-specific priors for your custom array. Benefits of utilizing SNP-specific priors are increased data robustness and batch-to-batch reproducibility. The Axiom Batch SSP Tool uses an analyzed batch of CEL files as input and produces outputs easily incorporated into subsequent analysis batches.
To access the Axiom Batch SSP Tool, contact your microarray Field Application Specialist.
The Annotation Converter software tool enables you to create custom SQLite format annotations (annot.db) for use with Axiom Analysis Suite. You can customize annotations for Thermo Fisher catalog genotyping arrays or generate annotations for Axiom custom genotyping arrays.
The Axiom Long Export Format Tool (AxLE) is a companion software application to Axiom Analysis Suite software that enables the export of Axiom array genotyping data into long format for easy comparison to legacy arrays.
The AxLE Tool requires Axiom Analysis Suite software to be installed prior to use. It is supported by 64-bit Microsoft Windows 10 Professional.
The AxLE Tool cannot be used for analyzing data from the Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 and can only be used for data from Axiom genotyping arrays.
Axiom HLA Analysis is an application for automated high-resolution HLA typing of genotyping array data. The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex is the human version of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC); this complex includes genes responsible for immune function. Variations in these genes affect immune response, including transplant rejection as well as disease susceptibility. The highly polymorphic nature of this region and the prevalence of pseudogenes create challenges in traditional genotyping methods. Combining the use of direct genotyping with advanced imputation methods over the extended MHC region allows accurate HLA typing from SNP genotype data.
With Axiom HLA Analysis 1.2, you will now be able to produce accurate HLA types from any Applied Biosystems genotyping data set containing high-quality genotypes of a select number of predetermined markers.
Coverage of major HLA genes:
Research Service Laboratory provides direct HLA analysis of any high-quality genotyping data set with sufficient coverage of markers within the extended MHC region. Please inquire for more information.
Download the latest version, Axiom HLA Analysis 1.2 (64-bit), and install the software by following the installation instructions found in the Axiom HLA Analysis User Guide. This version is supported on Microsoft Windows™ 10 Professional (SP 1) with Quad Core Processor and can be used for analyzing data from Axiom Human Genotyping Solution and Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 genotyping arrays.
Please note that while any population can be analyzed with this software, lower accuracy may be observed for some loci and alleles depending on their frequency in the reference panel. The current reference panel is optimized for Caucasian populations; we are continuing to improve coverage of additional ethnicities to improve call rates and accuracy.

Analysis Power Tools (APT) is a set of cross-platform command line programs that implement algorithms for analyzing and working with GeneChip™ and Axiom arrays. APT programs are intended for "power users" who prefer programs that can be utilized in scripting environments and are sophisticated enough to handle the complexity of extra features and functionality.
Axiom Microbial Analysis Software (MiDAS) is an analysis package for automated high-resolution genomic detection of microbial samples, designed for use with data generated from Axiom Microbiome arrays.
Axiom MiDAS performs single-sample analysis of CEL files from Axiom Microbiome arrays and automatically generates a comprehensive analysis summary in a simple-to-use software package.
For a complete list and explanation of features, please download the Axiom Microbiome Solution User Guide.
Download the latest version of Axiom MiDAS, version 1.0 (64-bit), and install the software by following the installation instructions found in the Axiom Microbiome Solution User Guide. This version is supported on Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) Professional. The software cannot be used for analyzing data from Axiom Genotyping Arrays.
