LGC Genomics Gains Illumina CSPro Certification

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – LGC Genomics today announced it has received Illumina CSPro certification for sequencing.

Illumina CSPro is a collaborative certified service provider partnership "dedicated to ensure the delivery of the highest quality data available for genetic analysis applications," LGC said in a statement.

Today's certification makes LGC CSPro-certified in Berlin, where it can use Illumina technology to provide sequencing services. The company also has an office in the UK.

LGC completed a two-phase certification process, which included minimum data generation, data certification, and an on-site audit of the facility and processes, it said.

LGC Genomics is a division of LGC, which last month announced the purchase of KBioscience, which was then combined with LGC Genomics.
