Affymetrix Introduces Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array for Genomic Profiling of Immune-Related Markers

Affymetrix Inc. introduced Axiom® Transplant Genotyping Array, designed in collaboration with an international team of surgeons and scientists for research studies to improve transplantation success and individualize donor/patient selection and treatment. The array comprises 780,000 markers, including over 30,000 variants that may contribute to transplant rejection or other complications. Researchers will also find the array useful in the study of immunology, disease and drug treatments; meta-analyses may be conducted, combining data with other genotype databases such as the UK Biobank cohort, a collection of more than 500,000 volunteers genotyped using the Affymetrix UK Biobank Axiom Array. Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array was developed and tested by the International Genetics and Translational Research in Transplantation Network (iGeneTRAiN [2]), co-led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
