Singapore's Prolaris Gets Illumina CSPro Certification

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Prolaris laboratory of the Genome Institute of Singapore said today that it has received Illumina certified service provider certification for sequencing using Illumina's products.

According to Prolaris COO Christopher Wong, Prolaris is the first lab in South-East Asia to receive Illumina CSPro certification for sequencing. The lab is funded by Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research and provides a variety of omics services.

Participants in the Illumina CSPro program are required to undergo a two-phase certification process that includes minimum data generation, data certification, and an on-site audit of a facility and its processes.

Other members of the Illumina CSPro program for sequencing include MOgene, Aalacris Theranostics, Personalis, LGC Genomics, and Expression Analysis.
