We provide a variety of sequencing services. These includes not only the preparation of the samples using various automated platforms, but also Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) on different platforms (HiSeq, MiSeq, and IonTorrent PGM). We can provide additional data analysis options, with the choice to receive raw sequencing data through to processed and filtered variant call files.
Using next-generation sequencing, it is possible to analyze about 2 billion sequences in parallel equating to more than 180 billion bases per day. In comparison to traditional Sanger sequencing, where only single sequences can be analyzed, NGS offers significant advantages including cost and time savings.
Whole exome sequencing enables the analysis of the entire protein coding region of a sample, which can then be compared across multiple exomes. Our experience extends from population genetics to tumor diagnostics.
Using transcriptome sequencing, analysis of all RNA molecules of a biological sample at a specific time-point, are detected and quantified. This analysis has wide-ranging capabilities and applications.
