Unfortunately, no you will not be able to analyze these data (using any
software I am familiar with) unless you have the cdf file. Whomever
originally purchased these chips should have the cdf file - Affy always
gives the cdf for custom chips to the purchaser, so you should be able
to get the cdf from them. Then all you have to do is make either the
cdfenv or cdfpackage.
