Genotyping enables the measurement of genetic variation between members of a species on the basis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Illumina BeadChips have been developed in collaboration with leading agricultural researchers. This means the SNP technology has been tried and tested by numerous agricultural organizations, industry and academia.

Application:

  • Copy Number Variation analyses

  • Biobank sample analyses

  • Parentage analyses

  • Plant, Animal and Human screening panels

  • Targeted disease or rare variant panels

  • QTLs, GWAS, SNP discovery and forensics


SNP genotyping is performed using the Infinium bead chip technology of Illumina (plants, animals and human). Both commercial and custom made Infinium bead chips, ranging from 1000 up to more than a± 3 K-1 million,000 K SNPs, are available from Illumina (www.illumina.com). We recommend that clients contact us for ordering and pricing of these, since reagents have expiry dates and we need to schedule the work around these dates.
