Microarrays

Thermo Fisher (Affymetrix) Microarray Services
We are a Thermo Fisher Service Provider and offer a broad range of services including assays run on the Gene Titan Multi-Channel (MC) Instrument:

Gene Expression and miRNA analysis
SNP Genotyping and CNV analysis, e.g. OncoScan and DMET microarrays
FFPE – Most Affymetrix microarrays are suitable for use with FFPE material

Illumina Microarray Services
We are an Illumina Service Provider offering the entire Illumina range of microarrays:

SNP genotyping and CNV analysis
Methylation profiling
FFPE – Both SNP genotyping and methylation analysis can be carried out using FFPE tissue
Custom microarray design service available

Genotyping and Copy Number

Genotyping and copy number analysis can be carried out using the following platforms:

qPCR – commercially available qPCR based assays and panels, e.g TaqMan
Sanger sequencing and Fragment analysis
Illumina and Affymetrix Microarrays

These technologies are suitable for genotyping any number of SNPs from one up to several million and for a wide range of sample numbers (1-100,000+). Several of our technology platforms are suitable for use with FFPE material.

Gene Expression and miRNA

We can carry out Gene Expression and miRNA analysis using a wide range of platforms, during your initial consultation our expert staff will evaluate and recommend the most suitable technology platform for your project:

Thermo Fisher Microarrays (all assays can be carried out using standard or low input amplification kits which allow the use of small RNA inputs as well as the use of degraded FFPE material)
qPCR based assays, e.g TaqMan

These technologies are suitable for analysing gene expression in any number from one up to whole transcriptome analysis and for a wide range of sample numbers (1-100,000+). Several of our technology platforms are suitable for use with FFPE material.

Methylation

We can carry out epigenetic analysis using a wide range of platforms, during your initial consultation our expert staff will evaluate and recommend the most suitable technology platform for your project:

The Illumina EPIC Microarray covers 850,000 targets and is suitable for use with degraded FFPE material
qPCR based assays, e.g TaqMan
Sanger Sequencing

These technologies are suitable for analysing methylation changes in a wide range of sample numbers (1-100,000+) and for target numbers from 1-850,000.

PCR

Via our high throughput qPCR systems we are able to offer a complete range of qPCR solutions including:

Gene expression
SNP genotyping
InDels and copy number variation
Methylation
FFPE compatible assays available
Custom assay design service available

Sequencing

Sanger Sequencing and Fragment Analysis Service
Using the ABI3130xl (including UGT1A1 *1/28/36/37 assay).
