Hi Adai, Thanks for getting back to me. I have about 100 HGU133A and HGUB and another 100 HGU plus2. I am sure that I can normalize each set separately, then union all of them. My concern will be the batch effects within each set. Can I do a secondary normalization using some simple approach trying to remove the batch effects among the sets? Thanks, A.G.

You might have to preprocess the 3 different chip types separately and then merge using union approach. This means that the samples from A and B chip type would have missing values. MAS 5.0 is outdated and has been shown to perform poorly for low-abundance genes. Use RMA, GCRMA or some other modern algorithm.
