Sean May's research group at Nottingham University are happy to collaborate on Affymetrix work including experimental design, processing and subsequent analysis with Partek. This will require the user to buy all the consumables themselves (with advice from the May group: e.g. Arabidopsis ST arrays plus label/hyb currently cost less than £180 per chip from Affymetrix - Mar 2014). For information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The facility operates an Affymetrix GeneChip® Array platform consisting of the 4-colour 7G upgrade enabling, it to process the highest resolution 5µm arrays available from Affymetrix. It offers a full hybridisation service and utilises Nanodrop and Agilent 2100 Bioanalyser technology for accurate quality control and assessment of samples throughout the process, optimising the quality of data output and minimising variable that are outside of biological variation.
Advice on experimental design is available.
Edinburgh Genomics offers a full Affymetrix service using the standard cartridge on the GCS3000 system or the higher throughput /lower cost PEG plate formats on the GeneTitan. They can work with you from experimental design through, sample preparation, hybridisation and analysis of the experiments using Partek software. Prices vary depending upon the number of samples and the array type selected for the study.
