Human Genotyping Arrays

Our Human Genotyping Arrays provide you with the greatest statistical power to detect trait and disease-associated variants available at a range of different scales. Optimized using data from the 1000 Genomes Project, Illumina Infinium arrays provide coverage of up to ~2 million markers targeting genome-wide and functional exonic variants in cost-effective, high-throughput assays.

Overview

Human genotyping arrays are a robust and well-established tool for studies, such as validation, targeting common variants in large sample populations. Often used for genome-wide association studies (GWAS), arrays offer a high-throughput, cost-effective solution. Our arrays feature rapid data delivery with well-established analytical methods allowing for streamlined interpretation of results.

We use state-of-the-art Illumina array technologies including Infinium whole-genome genotyping and methylation arrays. Custom arrays provide flexible solutions to meet a range of study requirements. Proven array scanning systems image each array, helping researchers unravel the complex genetic architecture behind diseases. Additionally, in-house software SNP selection and analysis tools are used to optimize data precision and research scalability.
