GeneSeek to Offer Illumina's Infinium Genotyping

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The agricultural genotyping company GeneSeek has become an Illumina service provider, and will offer Infinium-based services to its research clients, Illumina said today.
Under the Illumina CSPro collaborative partnership, GeneSeek will offer Illumina’s iSelect BovineSNP50, CanineSNP20, and EquineSNP50 BeadChips to its customers for large-scale plant and animal studies.
GeneSeek also plans to become a certified provider of Illumina’s GoldenGate genotyping “soon,” company CEO Abraham Oommen said in a statement. Oommen also noted that this CSPro agreement is the first that will be focused on livestock and companion animal research.
Illumina said its CSPro participants engage in a two-phase certification process that includes minimum data generation, data certification, and an audit of the facility and processes.
GeneSeek is headquartered in Lincoln, Neb., and has facilities in the United Kingdom and India.
