Roche NimbleGen said today that it has certified genomics service provider Atlas Biolabs to provide target-enrichment and sequencing services using its technologies.
Atlas Biolabs, based in Berlin, will provide DNA capture services using NimbleGen Sequence Capture arrays, and then sequence the samples on Roche's 454 GS FLX.
In order to join Roche Nimblegen's certified service provider program, Atlas had to pass "a rigorous certification test plan to achieve precise experimental standards," according to the firm.
Atlas offers a number of high-throughput microarray-based services, including targeted genomic enrichment, expression analysis, SNP analysis, and CGH analysis. According to its website, the firm also uses technologies from Affymetrix, Agilent Technologies, and Illumina. For sequence enrichment, it also offers services using RainDance Technologies' microdroplet PCR technology.
Atlas Biolabs joins two other European NimbleGen-certified service providers: Eurofins MWG Operon and ImaGenes.
