FastTrack Microarray Service Process and Offerings

Illumina FastTrack Services offers industry’s most flexible and comprehensive portfolio of microarray assays. When a customer starts a project with us, an expert molecular geneticist project manager will contact the PI of the project to walk them through the microarray service process. For our custom microarray service offerings, the project manager is available to help with SNP loci selection and walk customers through the use of an up-to-date database of >5 million validated SNP markers.

As a project progresses, each sample is handled with care, from arrival at Illumina to data generation. To ensure the success of every project, FastTrack Services offers an initial sample test, evaluating the integrity and performance of sample sets on our technology.

Throughout the process, there are multiple QC steps to give our customers confidence in their data. Moreover, each assay is treated with the same level of care for optimal delivery of high quality data in a short amount of time.

Key benefits of the Illumina FastTrack Services process include:

  • High-throughput for fast turnaround times
  • Automated and traceable for positive sample tracking
  • Dedicated QC steps for uncompromised data quality
