CIDR to Expand Illumina Services to Include Whole-Genome Association Research

NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Illumina said today that the Center for Inherited Disease Research will offer investigators a new genome-wide association service based on its Sentrix HumanHap300 BeadChip and Infinium assay.


CIDR is already using Illumina's Array Matrix and GoldenGate assay for SNP linkage and custom genotyping, Illumina said.


The new service will be integrated into CIDR's existing Illumina BeadLab system, which the company said features production-scale sample processing and will use its existing lab information management system, according to Illumina.


Financial details were not discussed.
