Affymetrix Microarrays Platform (PAM)

Affymetrix® Microarrays Platform (PAM) is a service focused on DNA and RNA microarray solutions offered by Affymetrix, with the main goal to offer solutions towards a personalized medicine. We offer microarrays for expression and for cytogenetics studies, from the basic research to applied research and diagnosis.

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


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.


  • Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0
  • CytoScan HD 
  • CytoScan 750K
  • OncoScan 

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.
