I have obtained some raw data from GEO (GSE40115) for the SurePrint G3 Human GE 8x60K Microarrays. I am looking to normalise this by quantile normalisation, however I can't decipher what are the relevant columns to use, I have a look around for agilent header information but can only find details about probes.

Also if anyone has an idea on how to combine samples into a single matrix easily that would be useful.

Code is already available to parse the headers for you. Just use:

library(limma)
x <- read.maimages(files, source="agilent")

where 'files' is a vector of file names for the files you downloaded from GEO. This will read the relevant columns from all the files into a matrix-like data object that you can then normalize and use. See the help page ?read.maimages or search for "Agilent" in the limma User's Guide:

   http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/vignettes/limma/inst/doc/usersguide.pdf

GSE40115 appears to be two-color microarrays, with a common reference on the Cy3 channel, so Chapter 10 of the limma User's Guide is relevant.

You should use gBGSubSignal i.e. the background subtracted signal intensity.  Also if a probe is detected (above background) then gIsWellAboveBG should be greater than zero.
