GeneChip Command Console Software is the instrument control software for GeneChip systems. Command Console Software provides an intuitive set of tools for instrument control and data management used in the processing of Axiom and GeneChip arrays.

Key features:

  • Provides summary of probe cell intensity data (CEL file generation); enables sample and array registration, data management, instrument control, and automatic and manual image gridding 
  • Enables flexiblility to customize, automate, and integrate workflows with a variety of laboratory information management systems. 
  • Supports the full range of assays by enabling seamless integration with downstream primary analysis applications such as Axiom Analysis Suite, Expression Console, and Axiom MiDAS software.
  • Compatible with all the commercially available GeneChip analysis applications through direct import of sample attribute and array data

We enable an open informatics platform that uses industry-standard file formats for sample annotations and open file formats to access Axiom and GeneChip array data. Inside Axiom and GeneChip-compatible analysis applications, sample attributes and array data are merged with automated downloads of library files and NetAffx annotations, providing streamlined data analysis workflows.

  GeneChip Command Console Software 4.3.3 Patch Only (exe, 31.3 MB)

AGCC 4.3.3 is a software patch to address the issue of batch registration errors once Microsoft Security Update KB4041681 is applied. The patch requires existing installation of AGCC 4.1.2 for GCS3000 or 4.3.2 for GeneTitan instrumentation. It is recommended for all Windows 7 users running AGCC 4.1.2 or higher. Refer to the AGCC 4.3.3 release notes for more information prior to installation of this patch.

  GeneChip Command Console Software 4.3.2 Upgrade Only (zip, 63 MB)

AGCC 4.3.2 is a software upgrade that can only be used to upgrade AGCC GeneTitan Instrument Control workstations that have AGCC 4.0 or above already installed. The package includes all software updates that followed the 4.0 release, so any of these versions can be directly updated to 4.3.2. Please refer to the release notes in the AGCC 4.3.2 installation package for a full description of the changes in AGCC 4.3.2. Please note AGCC 4.3.2 is not a full installation package.

 GeneChip Command Console Software 4.1.2 (zip, 383 MB)

AGCC 4.1.2 has been validated on Windows XP 32Bit and Windows 7 64Bit. Customers who currently have a 32-bit instrument workstation may need to either purchase a new 64-bit workstation or upgrade their workstation to 64-bit via an Affymetrix-recommended upgrade path. All customers seeking to upgrade to Windows 7 64Bit are requested to kindly consult with Affymetrix support (888-DNA-Chip) to discuss compatibility and upgrade paths and get the necessary support. Failure to do so may lead to system incompatibilities.

  Array Traceability Viewer (zip, 101 MB)

The Array Traceability Viewer (ATV ) software is installed on GeneTitan MC instrument control workstations where Affymetrix GeneChip Command Console (AGCC) is installed . The software offers the capability to (i) View the processing status for plates run on a particular instrument. (ii) View the sample and processing status for all the arrays on any particular array plate (iii) (iii) Identify the plate where your sample resides. (iv) View and export the sample and experiment attributes at an individual array level.
