Illumina Certifies Integragen for GoldenGate, Infinium Genotyping

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Integragen has received certification as a service provider for Illumina's GoldenGate and Infinium genotyping technologies, Illumina said today.
 
Illumina said the GoldenGate assay is designed for DNA methylation profiling, and offers a combination of high sample throughput, high multiplexing, and single-site CpG resolution. The Infinium BeadArray is used for custom SNP assays, and offers multi-sample BeadChip formats and high-density architecture, the company said.
 
Integragen, based in Evry, France, has already supplied the Illumina technology to study the loss of heterozygosity in liver tumors at the Human Polymorphism Study Center in Paris, Illumina said.
 
Illumina said that its certification process includes minimum data generation, data certification, and an on-site audit of the labs and processes.
