Affymetrix, Inc. provides life science products and molecular diagnostic products that enable parallel analysis of biological systems at the gene, protein and cell level. The company sells products to genomic research centers, academic institutions, government and private laboratories, as well as pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology companies. Segments The company operates in two business segments, Affymetrix Core and eBioscience. Affymetrix Core segment The Affymetrix Core segment focuses on the development, manufacture, and commercialization of systems for genetic analysis in the life sciences, AgBio, and diagnostic industry. The Affymetrix Core is divided into the following business units: Expression: This business unit markets the company's GeneChip gene expression products and services; Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications: This business unit markets the company's Axiom genotyping product line, as well as products with clinical diagnostic and research applications, including CytoScan HD, OncoScan products, and the ViewRNA in-situ hybridization platform for clinical translational research. In addition, the business unit is responsible for managing the PbA clinical partnering and licensing program which enables third-party diagnostic companies to access and develop DNA and RNA-based diagnostic tests on Affymetrix technology platforms. This business unit also markets the CytoScan Dx product, the FDA approved microarray system for post natal diagnostics of children with developmental delays and intellectual disabilities; and Life Science Reagents: This business unit sells reagents, enzymes, purification kits and biochemicals used by life science researchers and other biological and health care manufacturers, including those developing and marketing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) products and molecular diagnostics. eBioscience segment The eBioscience segment operates with its own manufacturing, research and marketing groups. This segment specializes in the areas of flow cytometry reagents, immunoassays, microscopic imaging, other protein-based analyses, QuantiGene single and multiplex RNA solution assays, and the Procarta multiplex immunoassay product lines. During 2014, the Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications Business Unit began marketing the ViewRNA in-situ hybridization platform for clinical translational research of RNA in tissue sections. Products The company offers a comprehensive line of products for the parallel analysis of biological systems at the gene, RNA, protein and cell level. Affymetrix Core: Through its Expression and Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications business units, the company sells integrated systems in three principal applications: whole genome cytogenetics, genotyping and gene expression. Consumables including GeneChip arrays, molecular biology reagents and detection chemistry for these applications run on its various microarray scanner instruments. The company has three families of systems, GeneChip, GeneTitan and GeneAtlas that include instruments, consumables, and software. The company’s GeneChip instruments run arrays packaged in cartridges and its GeneTitan and GeneAtlas instruments run multiple arrays simultaneously as they are packaged in various plate or strip formats for automated high throughput processing. The QuantiGene lines of assays for the measurement of RNA, DNA or protein levels in low- to mid-plex assays are included with the Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications business unit. The Life Science Reagents business unit offers reagents, enzymes, purification kits and biochemicals used by life science researchers. In addition, this business unit supplies other companies in its industries with products that are incorporated as part of their products. eBioscience: The eBioscience business segment offers a portfolio of antibodies and reagents for use in flow cytometry and immunoassays, as well as a range of QuantiGene (RNA and DNA assays) and Procarta Plex (protein assays) assays for low to mid-plex experiments. GeneChip The company’s GeneChip system provides an integrated solution for gene express
