Affymetrix Microarrays Platform (PAM)


PAM is an Affymetrix European Reference Group Cytogenetic applications and participates in the Cytogenetic European Quality Assessment (CEQA)

Affymetrix® Microarrays Platform (PAM) is a service focused on DNA and RNA microarray solutions offered by Affymetrix. Solutions towards a personalized medicine.

Molecular cytogenetics

Microarray studies can offer various solutions for cytogenetic applications:

  • Detection of whole genome gains and losses at a high resolution.
  • Analysis of whole genome absences of heterozygosity.
  • SNPs genotyping and genome-wide association studies.

RNA Analysis Solution

Gene expression profile studies on either human or mouse are suitable for:

  • Detection of genes and pathways involved in diseases, treatment responses and biological processes.
  • Predictive models based on gene expression profiles.
  • Pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics studies.
  • Alternative splicing detection.
  • Classification of samples on gene signatures.
  • Analysis of miRNA.
  • Microarray analysis on compromised samples with degraded and/or low quantity samples.

Quality sample analysis

In addition, to the microarray procedure we also offer DNA and RNA quantification and quality control analysis.
