Prior to Genotyping, please consider the following:

  • Consultation with our staff is required prior to starting all genotyping projects.
  • Genomic DNA in good condition works better than WGA’d DNA.  WGA and degraded DNA are acceptable for Taqman genotyping, but are discouraged for Infinium genotyping.  Highly degraded DNA may benefit from the restoration process that was designed for FFPE samples, but which can be used on other chips as well.
  • Not all assays will work on all platforms.  If you absolutely must have a particular SNP, we can help you assess which platform will give you the best assay.
