The GeneChip™ Scanner 3000 7G
The GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G is an extension of the GeneChip Scanner 3000 (GCS 3000) series that allows you to scan next-generation higher-density arrays, including SNP arrays with up to 900,000 SNPs, tiling arrays for transcription and all-exon arrays for whole-genome analysis.
The GCS 3000 7G combines space-saving and other design improvements with speed, superior performance and lower scanner-to-scanner variation to dramatically improve throughput and efficiency in your genetic analysis. The GCS 3000 7G also provides enhanced auto-focus and more consistent scanner-to-scanner biological performance to improve data integrity and data sharing between researchers.
In addition the GCS 3000 7G has been designed to accommodate future advancements in GeneChip probe array technology. Combined with the GeneChip AutoLoader, the GCS 3000 7G provides sample tracking, temperature control and walk-away freedom from scanning. This scanner is sold with a powerful computer workstation with quad-core Xeon processor loaded with Affymetrix GeneChip Command Console Software (AGCC). The purchase price includes a one-year service agreement.
GeneChip Scanner 3000 High-Resolution Scanning Patch
Do not install this patch unless you have upgraded your GeneChip Scanner 3000 for high resolution processing.
Please Note: If you plan to analyze array data generated from an instrument workstation or server that has been upgraded for high-resolution processing, you will need to apply this patch to your analysis workstation.
In addition, the High-Resolution Scanning Patch must be reapplied to GCOS workstations and server (if applicable) after installing all new library files.
