The Infinium Multi-Ethnic Global, Multi-Ethnic AMR/AFR, and Multi-Ethnic EUR/EAS/SAS Kits are being discontinued. We recommend transitioning to the Infinium Global Diversity Array, which is an updated version of the Multi-Ethnic Kits.
Infinium Multi-Ethnic AMR/AFR-8 Kit
A cost-effective array for understanding complex disease in diverse human populations, focused on Hispanic and African American populations.
Match your chosen kit size to the number of samples you run at a time. Each kit is processed as a single batch and is not designed to be divided across multiple experiments. If you are processing several low-throughput batches, order multiple small kits.
The Infinium Multi-Ethnic AMR/AFR-8 Kit provides a multi-purpose, multi-ethnic genotyping array focused on Hispanic and African American populations. With > 1.4 million expertly selected markers, it enables identification of genetic associations with common and rare traits, providing insight to epidemiologists, health care researchers, population geneticists, and genomic researchers.
This kit combines expertly selected markers and content from the most popular Illumina commercial arrays with the most current genomic information. Researchers can detect both common and rare variants across Hispanic and African American populations and impute variants in a vast number of subpopulations.
Maximized imputation accuracy
Consortium partners developed content for this multi-ethnic AMR/AFR genotyping array using tagging strategies with the power to perform more effective association studies in Hispanic and African American populations. The novel algorithm selects population-specific and transethnic tag SNPs that maximize imputation accuracy, as imputation has become a standard practice in the interpretation of genotyping data and allows for more accurate statistical inference of genotypes not directly genotyped.
