Cytogenetics

Human CytoSNP Chip: The HumanCytoSNP-12 BeadChip is designed to scan the whole genome in an efficient, high-throughput analysis of genetic and structural variations that are most relevant to human disease. Resolution is better than with FISH or CGH. The chip can be used to detect duplications, deletions, amplifications, copy-neutral LOH and mosaicism. The panel contains 200,000 “best of the best” SNPs with high tagging power, and includes dense coverage around the 250 genomic regions commonly screened in cytogenetics laboratories.

Human Core Product Line

Human Core BeadChip: The HumanCore BeadChip contains about 240,000 highly informative genome-wide tag SNPs found across diverse world populations and an additional 20,000 high-value markers. It is ideal for obtaining baseline sample datasets for downstream applications: common variant, mtDNA, ancestry, sex confirmation, loss of variant, indel, linkage and CNV detection. It can be ordered with Exome content or customized with up to 200,000 SNPs for an additional charge.

Human Omni Product Line

HumanOmniExpress BeadChip: The HumanOmniExpress genotypes 700,000+ SNPs, gleaned from all three HapMap phases. It is primarily targeted for Caucasian and Asian populations, with genomic coverage of 0.91 at r2 > 0.8 in these populations. It also supports CNV applications, with a 4.0 kb mean distance between CNVs across the genome. Illumina now has developed a method for running this chip with DNA restored from FFPE and other highly degraded samples. This service is available through our facility, for an additional charge. The content of the Exome chip or up to 200,000 SNPs may be added to this chip for an additional charge. The OmniExpress + Exome chip may be customized with up to 30,000 additional SNPs.

HumanOmni2.5: This high density chip has 2.45 million SNPs. It offers a comprehensive set of both common and rare SNP content from the 1000 genome project. It is designed to analyze diverse world populations. Mean SNP spacing is 1.18 kb, and 1.2 million of the SNPs are within 10 Kb of a RefSeq gene. Almost 50,000 of the SNPs are nsSNPs. The content of the Exome chip or up to 200,000 SNPs may be added to this chip for an additional charge.  Custom SNPs cannot be added to the Omni2.5+Exome chip.

HumanOmni5: The Omni5 chip is designed to supplement data created from the Omni2.5 and bring it to the equivalent of the Omni5 chip. leverages tagSNPs selected from the HapMap and 1000 Genomes Projects, targeting genetic variation down to 1% MAF. The chip contains 4.3 million SNPs, and up to 500,000 custom markers can be added to them. The content of the Exome chip or up to 500,000 SNPs may be added to this chip for an additional charge.  Up to 200,000 SNPs may be added to the Omni5+Exome chip.

Human Multi-Ethnic Global Array (MEGA) Product Line

Human Multi-Ethnic Global Array: Consortium partners developed content for this multi-ethnic global genotyping array using tagging strategies with the power to perform more effective association studies in diverse populations. The novel algorithm selects population-specific and transethnic tag SNPs that maximize imputation accuracy, as imputation has become a standard practice in the interpretation of genotyping data and allows for more accurate statistical inference of genotypes not directly genotyped.

Human Multi-Ethnic EUR/EAS/SAS BeadChip: The Infinium Multi-Ethnic EUR/EAS/SAS chip provides a multi-purpose, multi-ethnic genotyping array focused on European, East Asian, and South Asian populations.
Human Multi-Ethnic AMR/AFR BeadChip: The Infinium Multi-Ethnic AMR/AFR chip provides a multi-purpose, multi-ethnic genotyping array focused on Hispanic and African American populations.
With > 1.4 million expertly selected markers, either of these arrays enable identification of genetic associations with common and rare traits, providing insight to epidemiologists, health care researchers, population geneticists, and genomic researchers.

*Pricing Details

For GWAS projects with more than 94 samples, our full service pricing includes:

  • Pretesting with the Illumina QC array (15,000 snps used to barcode the sample and verify the GWAS dataset released matches the sample submitted, as well as used to verify gender, family relationships, sample performance).
  • Identification of problems and replacement of problem samples before running the sample on the GWAS arrays.
  • Two HapMap controls per 96 well plate and 1 blind duplicate every other plate.
  • Repetition of any sample which has less than a 96.5% call rate for an Illumina array. We attempt the GWAS assay only twice.
