MGC Genotyping Service

  • Focused Uniplex SNP Genotyping
    Focused uniplex SNP genotyping is performed on Applied Biosystems' ViiA7 Real-Time PCR System using both pre-developed and custom TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays. Uniplex genotyping is best used to interrogate a small number of SNPs on a large number of samples.

  • Focused Multiplex SNP Genotyping
    Focused multiplex SNP genotyping is performed on Illumina's iScan System using their BeadArray® technology.  Illumina's targeted beadchips offer standard and custom content with 96 - 1 million multiplexed SNP assays.

  • Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS)
    GWAS are performed on Illumina's iScan System using their BeadArray technology. HD BeadChips offer researchers the flexibility to profile samples with 300,000 to 4.3 million markers in high-throughput format, and deliver dense genome-wide coverage with the most up-to-date content available from the scientific community. Strategically selected probes provide sensitive copy number variation analysis and target high-value regions of the genome associated with disease.
