Snp Genotyping

High-Throughput Analysis Service for Genetic Analysis

BioXpedias in-house technologies for SNP genotyping and copy number variation analysis are based on high throughput and reproducibility. Our technologies likewise support SNP tracing for e.g. quality control check of biobank samples and cell lines.

Our technologies for genetic analyses:

The Fluidigm systems allow high-throughput customized SNP genotyping with either custom or pre-designed assays using TaqMan® Probes, SNP Type assays or IDT rhAmp® SNP assays. This technology is especially suited for studies with 100 to 100.000 samples analysing multiple SNPs.

Using copy number variation (CNV) or gene fusion panels from NanoString we can provide sensitive and validated assays for genetic analyses in a multiplex manner. These assays are also suited for FFPE samples and are especially focused on cancer research. The NanoString kits contain reagents for 12 samples in a run and is thus suited for both big and small projects.

Sample Types for Genotyping Analysis

The technologies we offer for our genetic analyses require very little material, as the Fluidigm system uses Integrated Fluidic Circuits allowing reactions in the nanolitre scale. Likewise, NanoString analyses also require small amounts of genomic DNA.

The genomic DNA can be extracted from various sample types, such as:

  • FFPE
  • Fresh or frozen tissue
  • Cell lysates
  • cfDNA from plasma or serum
  • EDTA Blood
  • Etc…

Applications

SNP genotyping has applications in several areas, especially regarding patient stratification and responsiveness to treatment. Genetic analyses in general is highly relevant in cancer research, as genetic errors can be the main cause for oncologic diseases.
