Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) map genetic variants associated with diseases across the genome. Illumina´s Infinium HD BeadChips offer GWAS researchers the flexibility to profile samples in various multiplex formats, and deliver dense genome-wide coverage with carefully selected tag SNPs.
ATLAS Biolabs is an experienced Illumina Service Provider and delivers high-quality results for all of Illumina´s Infinium BeadChips. Illumina’s unique BeadArray technology is based on 3 micron silica beads that self assemble in microwells on planar silica slides. Each bead is covered with hundreds of thousands of copies of a specific oligonucleotide, which acts as the capture sequence in the Infinium HD Assay protocol. Outstanding characteristics of the BeadArray technology include 100% quality control of every single array, and high feature-redundancy (>20x average) providing high-confidence results.
