GeneChip® Technology

The following information is provided for your research and reference only.

GeneChip® probe arrays enable scientists to attain their research goals—from identifying genetic variations associated with disease to discovering new drug targets. Using technologies adapted from the semiconductor industry, GeneChip® array manufacturing relies on photolithography and solid-phase chemistry to produce arrays with thousands of probes packed at extremely high densities.

GeneChip probe arrays are designed to maximize sensitivity, specificity, and reproducibility, allowing consistent discrimination between specific and background signals, and between closely related target sequences.
