Targeted SNP Genotyping
We offer single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping with:
- Real-time PCR (Roche's LightCycler)
- Agena Bioscience (Sequenom) MassArray
Genome-wide SNP Genotyping
We offer single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping with all Illumina's genotyping chips.
Copy Number Variation (CNV) Analysis
CNV analyses are performed with either Illumina's regular or cytogenetic genotyping chips.
Speed congenics SNP genotyping
Mouse SNP genotyping by a next generation sequencing panel, including 1447 SNPs annotated to mouse mm10 build and dbSNP 1.37 database.

DNA Methylation Analysis
Methylation profiling is available at our genomics facility with two different methods:
- Illumina's Infinium 450k Infinium Methylation BeadChip, with genomewide coverage of >450 000 methylation sites. Minimum sample size is 24 samples
- Targeted analysis of one or several amplicons in a 384-plate format with Sequenom's EpiTyper method.
For other DNA methylation analysis applications see also our high-throughput sequencing services.
Cell Line Authentication
Human cell line authentication is available in our lab using microsatellite markers (Promega GenePrint 10 System). The system allows co-amplification and detection of ten human loci (9 STR loci and Amelogenin for gender identification). These loci collectively provide a genetic profile with a random match probability of 1 in 2.92 x 109. Identified genetic profile is compared to publicly available data to count allelic identity. Please note, that genetic profile may not be available from your cell line. The analysis will, however, produce a genetic fingerprint in such cases.
