Focused uniplex SNP genotyping is performed on Applied Biosystems' ViiA7 Real-Time PCR System using both pre-developed and custom TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays. Uniplex genotyping is best used to interrogate a small number of SNPs on a large number of samples.
Focused multiplex SNP genotyping is performed on Illumina's iScan System using their BeadArray® technology. Illumina's targeted beadchips offer standard and custom content with 96 - 1 million multiplexed SNP assays.
Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) are performed on Illumina's iScan System using their BeadArray® technology. HD BeadChips offer researchers the flexibility to profile samples with 300,000 to 4.3 million markers in high-throughput format, and deliver dense genome-wide coverage with the most up-to-date content available from the scientific community. Strategically selected probes provide sensitive copy number variation analysis and target high-value regions of the genome associated with disease.
