Affymetrix released the technical specifications for its GeneChip Scanner 3000, which will be introduced in February at the Lab Automation trade show. The company says the scanner will be up to 50 percent faster in processing its standard arrays, scanning at a rate of 5.5 minutes for standard Affymetrix chips, using a solid-state green laser without a separate laser power supply.
