NGS and array methods can advance complex disease research

Other Complex Diseases

Complex diseases are caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. These diseases include diabetes, heart conditions, osteoporosis, and others.

Array and NGS solutions have the power to increase understanding of complex diseases on a molecular level. Global and targeted genetic analyses using Illumina technology can provide detailed insight into the genomic causes of disease and functional consequences of variation.

TruSight Cardio Sequencing Kit: This comprehensive, cost-effective solution enables researchers to identify causal variants implicated in cardiac conditions.

AmpliSeq for Illumina Sequencing Solution: A highly multiplexed polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based workflow for use with targets ranging from a few to hundreds of genes in a single run.

Infinium iSelect Custom Genotyping BeadChips: Design custom genotyping arrays for any study. Interrogate up to 1 million markers (SNPs, indels, or CNVs) for any species.
