[This article includes a correction inserted after publication. The new Affymetrix scanner does not cost $200,000, as the article originally stated. The company does not provide a list price for the scanner. As a rule of thumb, labs can expect to pay from $200,000 to $250,000, to install a single instance of the Affymetrix platform.]
