Illumina Sells BeadLab Station to Mayo Clinic

NEW YORK, Jan. 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Mayo Clinic will purchase a BeadLab genotyping system from Illumina to study cancer and other complex diseases, the company said today.


Mayo researchers plan to use the station initially mainly for genomic studies of cancer and various neuropsychiatric and cardiovascular disorders.


The system, which will be installed at Mayo's Rochester, Minn., location and be able to produce one million genotypes per day, will be available to investigators at all three Mayo Clinic sites. The other two sites are located in Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz.
