At the start of all analyses DNA needs to be extracted.
You can count on our long experience in forensic DNA trace analysis or clincal trial samples, especially with sensitive samples.
Either for the analysis of single samples or the parallel preparation of ten thousands of blood and tissue samples we offer a reliable testing service.
Our well-trained laboratory staff works according to a certified quality management system. Automated platforms and pipetting robots facilitate the high-throughput analysis and enable a consistent quality standard
High-throughput genotyping of 1 to 100 SNPs per sample for the following applications
- Population genetics
- Biomarker determination and validation
- Association studies (also with pooled DNA and mutations with low frequencies)
- Parentage and pedigree testing
- Genomic selection
- Fine mapping of gene loci, haplotyping
Genotyping of microsatellites by fragment length analysis (FLA) of fluorescent PCR products with Capillary Electrophoresis.
Expect fast and accurate services with more than 40 thermal cyclers and electrophoretic separation on ABI 3130 and ABI 3100 automatic sequencers.
Typical applications are
- DNA forensics
- Parentage testing and human genealogy
- Parentage and pedigree testing of animals
- Population genetics
- QTL studies
Discover, validate and genotype - from single markers to whole genome.
Marker discovery, validation and genotyping can be very efficient with next generation sequencing methods. In many cases, Sanger sequencing is still the best method, especially for more complex or selected DNA markers.
Analysis of copy number variations via
- Long-range PCR
- Quantitative PCR
- Next generation sequencing
Genome-wide association study (GWAS) is an examination of shared genetic variants in different individuals to see if any of such variants is associated with a trait. GWASs typically focus on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and traits like major diseases.
Profit from the whole range of Affymetrix GeneChips and Illumina BeadChips, incl. GoldenGate and Infinium assays.
The human identification services includes human contamination tracing and human clinical sample identification in research, biotechnological and pharmaceutical applications.
Full cell line identification services from DNA extraction to official certificates of authenticity that are accepted by peer-reviewed scientific journals.
