Real-Time PCR

  • Roche LightCycler 480 for highly accurate gene detection, gene expression analysis, genetic variation analysis, and array validation

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

  • DNA/RNA sequencing library generation, validation, and quantification
  • Ilumina NextSeq 500 sequencing platform with capabilities of producing up to 400 million single reads or 800 million paired-end reads at read lengths of 75, 150, or 300 base pairs

Single Cell Sequencing

  • Partitions single cells, nuclei, or high molecular weight gDNA from tens of thousands of individual cells using 10x Genomics’ Chromium platform
  • Supports a broad range of applications, including single cell transcriptomics, cell type identification and single nucleotide variants discovery. 

For more information about 10x Genomics Single Cell Sequencing please follow this link:


  • nCounter Prep Station for automated fluidic handling of post-hybridized samples for digital examination of multiple pathways in a single tube in an extraction-free workflow 
  • nCounter Digital Analyzer for image data collection of color-coded single target-specific probes
