NEW YORK, Jan. 9 - Genome Quebec has bought one of Illumina's nameless SNP-genotyping laboratories, the company said today.
The system, which will be located at the newly opened Genome Quebec Innovation Centre, will help the Canadian center contribute data to the International HapMap Project as well as research at Genome Quebec, Genome Canada, McGill University, and other academic centers in the country.
The product costs between $1.5 million and $2 million and comprises Sherlock scanning equipment, GoldenGate assay protocols, LIMS and analytical software, fluid-handling robotics, and access to Sentrix array matrices and reagent supply. When installed, the lab, which is at the center of a legal dispute with Applied Biosystems, will be able to crank out one million genotypes per day.
