Affymetrix GeneChip-compatible status for Exon Expression on GeneChip Microarray Platform

Genedata's Expressionist platform has expanded its GeneChip-compatible status for Exon expression with the Affymetrix GeneChip microarray platform. Genedata Expressionist is a modular enterprise system for biomarker discovery. It represents a single-point-of-access for experimental, proprietary and public data, including sample information, raw and pre-processed transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and lab chemistry data, analysis results, reports and documentation.  

Expressionist's Refiner Array module performs high-throughput automated quality assessment and processing of Affymetrix GeneChip Exon data. Workflow-based processing supports validated working environments, while comprehensive reporting and documentation features ensure effective project management and communication. The high level of automation increases reproducibility and supports efficient handling of large experimental datasets, taking only a few seconds per array while scalability benchmarks demonstrate nearly linear scalability of processing 50, 100, 500 or 1,000 Exon chips at a time.
