Affymetrix Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array

Affymetrix has launched the Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array for research studies on transplantation success, individualizing donor/patient selection, and treatment. The array features around 780,000 markers, including over 30,000 genetic variants that may contribute to transplant rejection or other complications and around 350,000 SNPs for Caucasian-European and non-European populations to improve the mean coverage achieved in major ethnicities, including African and Asian populations.

The array can also be used in the study of immunology, disease, and drug treatments.
