Illumina has certified LGC Genomics to offer sequencing services on the Illumina platform. To become certified, LGC Genomics completed a two-phase process that included minimum data generation, data certification, and an on-site audit of its facility and processes.
Neils Kruize, sales director of LGC, said in a statement that the certification is "an important development for our next generation sequencing service."
Aside from sequencing, LGC offers genotyping services, assays, and reagents; DNA and RNA extraction services and products; instruments, reagents and consumables for molecular biology; pharmacogenetics and diagnostic services; and genomic services.
The company is headquartered in Teddington, UK, and its genomic sequencing service operations are based in Berlin, Germany.
