About Thermo Fisher Scientific

Affymetrix is a brand of DNA microarray products sold by Thermo Fisher Scientific that originated with an American biotechnology research and development and manufacturing company of the same name. The Santa Clara, California-based Affymetrix, Inc. was founded by Stephen Fodor and his group, based on their earlier development of methods to fabricate DNA microarrays using semiconductor manufacturing techniques.[not verified in body] ,In 1994, the company's first product under the "GeneChip" Affymetrix trademark, an HIV genotyping chip was introduced,[not verified in body] and the company went public in 1996.[not verified in body] ,After incorporation, Affymetrix grew in part by acquiring technologies from other companies, including Genetic MicroSystems and Neomorphic in 2000, ParAllele Bioscience,[when?] USB/Anatrace in 2008, Panomics in 2008, and eBioscience in 2012.[verification needed] Affymetrix spun off Perlegen Sciences,[when?] as a discrete business focussing on wafer-scale genomics to characterize population-variance of genomic markers.[not verified in body] ,In January 2014, the Food and Drug Administration approved Affymetrix's postnatal blood test, CytoScan Dx Assay, looking at whole-genome correlates of congenital abnormalities and other causes of childhood developmental delay.[verification needed] ,On January 8, 2016, Thermo Fisher Scientific announced its acquisition of Affymetrix for approximately $1.3 billion, which closed on March 31, 2016.
