The Genomic Core facility offers a range of commercial microarray technologies from Illumina, Affymetrix and Agilent as well as sample quality control.
mRNA expression (Illumina, Agilent, Affymetrix)
  • Illumina provides high quality and cost effective beadarrays for gene expression studies of human samples. More information about Illumina's gene expression human beadarrays can be found here.
  • Agilent technologies provide human microarrays in addition to a wide range of different species, as well as custom design arrays at no additional cost. Read more about the Agilent's expression microarrays here.
  • Affymetrix offers a range of high density microarrays for human, mouse and rat, in addition to numerous other species. More information to be found here.

miRNA expression (Agilent, Affymetrix)
  • miRNA expression services are offered using Agilent and Affymetrix microarray. Up-to-date information on microarray content can be found at the companies’ websites, or by contacting the Genomics Core Facility. Prices vary upon the number of samples and type of microarray.

DNA Copy Number and Genotyping (Illumina, Affymetrix, Agilent)
  • The Core Facility provides services for genotyping and DNA copy number analysis using a large collection of Illumina, Affymetrix and Agilent  microarrays. Services using SNP and oligonucleotide microarrays are available for DNA copy number analysis. For more information on the different microarrays visit Illumina's, Affymetrix's and Agilent's website. Prices vary upon the number of samples and type of microarray.

DNA Methylation (Illumina)
  • Genome-wide CpG methylation profiling services are provided using Illumina’s Infinium technology, a robust methylation profiling platform that provides quantitative methylation measurement at the single-CpG-site level. Profiles of over 450,000 CpG sites can be processed in parallel using the HumanMethylation450k BeadChip.

The Genomics Core Facility has recently installed a NanoString nCounter system. The nCounter utilizes a novel digital barcode technology for direct multiplexed measurement of analytes and offers high levels of precision and sensitivity. This technology allows the analysis of expression of up to 800 mRNAs, miRNAs, DNA regions, or proteins simultaneously, using predesigned assays, as well as custom solutions.
