|Infinium Omni2.5-8 Kit||Infinium Multi-Ethnic Global-8 Kit||Infinium Omni5-4 Kit|
|Description||8-sample arrays with high throughput and optimized tag SNP content, including full support of copy number variation applications, designed to be highly customizable and maximally informative for studying diverse world populations.||With content from a variety of resources, this multiethnic array allows researchers to detect both common and rare variants across the most commonly studied 5 superpopulations in order to impute variants in a vast number of subpopulations.||A high-density array that provides exceptional coverage of common, intermediate, and rare SNPs while leveraging powerful tag SNPs and offering optimized content for whole-genome genotyping and copy number variation studies.|
|Number of Markers||Fixed markers: ~2,381,000, Custom marker add-on capacity: None||Fixed markers: 1,779,819
Custom marker add-on capacity: Up to 245,000
