Sequencing

We are skilled in delivering high-quality next-generation sequencing data from RNA and DNA samples, using Illumina NovaSeq, HiSeq X and MiSeq platforms in addition to the Pacific Biosciences Sequel. We also regularly carry out Sanger dideoxy sequencing, using AB3730 instruments

Clinical Genomics WGS

Whole Genome Sequencing of samples using the Illumina HiSeq X platform produces high quality data at an unprecedented speed and low cost. Laboratory automation using Illumina SeqLab platform allows very high efficiency and low variability.

Genotyping-Arrays

High-density genotyping of pedigrees and populations, and microarray analyses of expression, binding and copy number variation are mainstays of genetic and genomic analysis. We offer genotyping and microarray gene expression analyses using Illumina and Affymetrix platforms.
