AGTC Genomics

The Most Advanced DNA Technology

We utilize the most advanced genomic technology for results you can trust. All samples are processed in our own laboratory, using the most advanced technology. We utilise NovaSeq™ 6000 systems, manufactured in the USA, by Illumina – the global market leader in DNA sequencing equipment.

illumina NovaSeq 6000

Illumina NovaSeq 6000 System

Reliable and high quality NGS data is a key component in genomics research. At AGTC Genomics, we use the most effective technology available from world leading providers including Illumina NovaSeq 6000. Our NGS labs have developed optimized NGS processes and protocols to ensure the best possible scientific outcome for your research.

The NovaSeq Sequencer provides tremendous scalability and flexibility to accommodate diverse applications and project sizes, for virtually any sequencing method, genome, and scale of project, such as expression profiling, whole transcriptome analysis, microbial genome, WES, low pass WGS, etc., while accommodating rapid turnaround, flexible configurations and cost effectiveness. With the NovaSeq, we are able to sequence up to 48 human whole genomes and produce 6Tb of data per single run as short as 40 hours.

Illumina iScan System

High-throughput, multiplex human genotyping microarrays allow for powerful global, population-scale studies. Quickly and cost-effectively identify mutations and structural variations in diverse human populations or biobank samples. Human genotyping arrays support whole-genome, targeted genome, and exome analyses, with expert-defined content, and consortia-developed content arrays for specific applications.

The iScan System can scan thousands of array samples per day, without sacrificing data quality or reproducibility. It supports our expansive portfolio of genetic analysis assays, from high-throughput genotyping to DNA methylation analysis.

Illumina DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform

The Dragen analysis pipeline allows high sensitivity detection of mutations and instability in difficult to analyze repetitive regions. The DRAGEN Platform uses highly reconfigurable field-programmable gate array technology (FPGA) to provide hardware-accelerated implementations of genomic analysis algorithms, such as BCL conversion, mapping, alignment, sorting, duplicate marking, and haplotype variant calling. DRAGEN ORA lossless genomic compression technology enables significant storage cost savings on FASTQ files. Fundamental features of the DRAGEN Platform address common challenges in genomic analysis, such as lengthy compute times and massive volumes of data.

Without compromising accuracy, the DRAGEN Platform delivers quickness, flexibility, and cost efficiency. The reprogrammable nature of the DRAGEN Platform enables Illumina to develop custom algorithms and allows for improvements to accommodate future applications.
