Array-based genotyping solutions for non-human species

Non-Human Genotyping

Illumina offers a comprehensive suite of genotyping array products for non-human organisms. Ready-to-use BeadChip microarray solutions are available for crops, livestock, and model organisms, leveraging expert-selected and Consortia-developed content. For non-human organisms that have not yet been investigated genetically, custom iSelect arrays can be created with known or suspected markers.

Powered by industry-leading Infinium assay technologies, Illumina non-human genotyping BeadChips deliver exceptional data quality and high-density genomic coverage. These BeadChips support high-throughput, multiplex processing for large-sample studies, delivering high-quality data at a low per-sample cost.

Genotyping studies in plants and animals can uncover the relationship between genotype and phenotype, informing breeding decisions and the genetic selection of valued traits to enhance crops and herds.
