Affymetrix has launched its benchtop GeneAtlas system for gene expression analysis.
GeneAtlas is based on a new array strip format that allows users to interrogate four samples simultaneously. Array strips are currently available for expression profiling of the human, mouse, and rat genomes, the company said.
The array strip is also available for custom array designs through Affy's MyGeneChip program. The company said that it will introduce additional arrays and applications in the future.
