New Equipment: Illumina iScan
High-Throughput Array Scanner

Illumina iScan We are now offering services on our latest instrument: the Illumina iScan Array Scanner. 

Submicron resolution, high-throughput processing for human genotyping and methylation arrays. Along with the Tecan liquid handling system, we are able to process several arrays for high-throughput array scanning. 

Contact us for more information about your next iScan project.
