Direct to Consumer Genomics Testing

We have experience in DNA analysis for > 18 years and are known for providing an accurate, reliable service with the fast turnaround time required for DTC customers.

Our experience with numerous extraction techniques and several different saliva and buccal collection methods also us to offer bespoke services to fit all company’s needs – whether they are start-up businesses with limited numbers of initial samples or global, world-leading genomics companies.

We also have several different platforms of choice for genotyping offering both manual and automated processing options for both key technologies used by Illumina and Thermofisher (Affymetrix).

Workflows

Customised end-to-end workflows from saliva or buccal swabs samples from a wide range of collection kits (e.g. Copan 4N6 FLOQ swabs, DNA Genotek OG kits)
High-throughput automated extraction, quantification, QC and library preparation procedures
Technical consultation services available for kit collection, sample requirements, microarray and platform selection
Assay requirements customised for immediate and future client needs

Technology

We use leading, cutting-edge technology from both Illumina and ThermoFisher.

The Illumina Infinium Global Screening Array combines multi-ethnic genome-wide content, curated clinical research variants, and quality control (QC) markers for precision medicine research.

Thermofisher Axiom custom arrays allow custom genotyping for small and large studies. Full or semi-customised genotyping arrays offer unprecedented scale and flexibility to design optimal arrays containing 1,500 to 2.6 million markers.

We have experience with DNA extraction from a number of saliva and buccal collection vessels and have procedures in place for simplified workflows. Most commonly used methods include Copan 4N6 FLOQ swabs, DNAGenotek OG kits, Isohelix.
