Affymetrix Genotyping Arrays - Service Features

As part of this service, samples are digested, ligated and amplified via PCR. The PCR products are then purified, fragmented and end-labeled before being processed into hybridization cocktails and run on arrays. A reference DNA sample from Affymetrix is processed along with each group of samples to ensure the reactions are performing optimally.

Turn-Around Time:

The Facility processes 24-48 samples per week. Small projects [20-30 samples] are processed within 2 weeks. For larger projects, a time-table will be established before the project is initiated. If we have a large backlog, we will notify you of a delay. If you require data faster, please let us know, and we will do our best to process your samples right away.

Data Retrieval:

Raw data (CEL and ARR) files will be posted to our FTP server. User's will be given a username and password to access their data. DAT files may be uploaded upon request. Our server has limited storage space, so any posted data will be removed after 2 weeks of the posting date. It is the User's responsibility to download their data.
