Genotyping

beadchip-12-fanCGS provides a fully flexible SNP genotyping service on Affymetrix and Illumina platforms for small, large, standard or customized projects, on humans and many other species.

CGS is one of the core labs with the highest capacity. Having the Tecan liquid-handling robot, iScan and autoloader, and a GeneTitan® Multi-Channel (MC) Instruments, our automated high throughput set-up makes us the ideal facility to run large genotyping projects for thousands of samples with fast turn-around times. We have extensive experience with large scale high-throughput genotyping projects to up to 70,000 samples and have the LIMS (Genologics) to support sample/project tracking.

Do not hesitate to ask us for advice on the choice of arrays or follow the links to Illumina's and Affymetrix portfolios.
