The Core Facility offers genotyping service from small scale to high throughput approaches. A highly automated sample preparation workflow is implemented for DNA preparation, normalization using PicoGreen® and generating 96- and 384-well storage and PCR plates.

For low throughput projects two real time PCR machines (7900HT system, 384-well with robotic plate loading and 7500 system, 96-well) enables up to 4600 genotypes per day using TaqMan® technology.

For medium to high throughput genotyping all Illumina genotyping products (Infinium and GoldenGate assay) can be processed in a highly automated workflow using Illumina Tecan automation.

Sample requirements for different genotyping methods are outlined under Project Design.
