Illumina genotyping arrays provide an efficient and powerful toolset for examining the widest range of genetic variation. Whether you are conducting a large-scale Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) or providing genetic services as part of a commercial laboratory, Illumina's economical Infinium, GoldenGate, and VeraCode genotyping microarray platforms combine industry-leading data quality, with the content flexibility to match any application.
Leading the Way for Array-Based Genetic Studies
Providing industry best data quality and content flexibility, the Infinium genotyping assay is the engine that powers the Omni family of whole-genome microarrays, targeted consortia microarrays, and our iSelect custom microarrays.
Since the Omni family of microarrays was launched in 2009, we've offered an expanding selection of flexible arrays featuring only the most informative common and progressively rare variants. Delivering the most powerful markers selected from the International HapMap and 1000 Genomes Projects. Built with input from thought leaders in the human genetics research community, to ensure these markers will effectively advance your studies.
At the same time, Illumina has succeeded in increasing the flexibility of our custom options. The Omni family of microarrays can be enhanced with hundreds of thousands of markers of custom content: what we call "semi-custom". Or, you can design your own microarray from the bottom-up using 48 to 1M SNPs.
The Genotyping Platform of Choice for Commercial Laboratories
In addition to providing industry-leading data quality, generating data on Illumina genotyping platforms is simple, flexible, and fast. Infinium and GoldenGate are 3-day assays from sample prep to data. Both can be fully automated enabling processing of hundreds to thousands of samples per week. Illumina provides a range of automation options, LIMs systems, and data analysis solutions to make sure that data is generated and delivered on time.
Enabling Robust FFPE Sample Analysis
Millions of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) archival cancer tissue samples provide an enormous and invaluable repository of information for cancer research. However, the fixation process and storage of FFPE samples frequently leads to nucleic acid degradation and base modification. To overcome this problem, Illumina has developed a FFPE sample restoration solution that provides a simple workflow to QC samples, repair damaged DNA, and achieve high-quality data using the Infinium HD Assay.
Cutting-Edge Array Scanners
The HiScan and iScan systems are cutting-edge array scanners that support rapid, sensitive, and accurate imaging of Illumina BeadChips for industry-leading genetic analysis results. Both systems support Illumina's broad portfolio of innovative genetic analysis assays for genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, and gene expression profiling. For additional functionality, the HiScan system can be paired with supplementary modules to create a powerful platform, the HiScanSQ system, which integrates the power of next-generation sequencing with array analysis, enabling possibilities for richer discovery.
