Making Affymetrix instrument ownership easy

The Affymetrix OwnerChip Program is a rent-to-own program that enables you to spread the cost of new instruments over the cost of arrays, assays, and reagents. Whether you use a few hundred or more than 10,000 arrays per year, the OwnerChip Program is an easy way to get the newest microarray technology in your lab without the upfront capital expenditure.

In addition, instruments acquired through the OwnerChip Program are covered by the same one-year and extended warranty maintenance agreements that accompany all instrument purchases.

The OwnerChip Program allows you to:

  • Avoid being tied to grant or funding cycles
  • Quickly adopt Affymetrix technology
  • Be among the first with access to the newest Affymetrix products
  • Upgrade to a GeneTitan Instrument for hands-free microarray processing
