DNA Sequencing Core - Affymetrix GeneChip Node

University of Michigan DNA Sequencing Core - Affymetrix GeneChip Node Facility

The Affymetrix GeneChip Node is a full service facility dedicated to providing RNA expression profiling services using Affymetrix® GeneChip® oligonucleotide probe arrays. This resource is available to the general UM research community. AffyScanner3000

 The Core has two Affymetrix 3000 7G Scanners (pictured on right), 6 FS450 fluidics stations and 3 hybridization ovens for processing cartridge based GeneChips.

In 2011, the core acquired a Gene Atlas System (pictured below).  The Gene Atlas is capable or running peg based arrays in strips of 4.  Several lower cost strip arrays are now available for human, mouse, and many model organisms.
