BEA - the core facility for Bioinformatics and Expression Analysis is a national genomic service facility located at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition in the new NEO building at the KI South Campus in Huddinge. BEA provides an extensive repertoire of genomic technologies to ongoing research projects principally at the Karolinska Institute but also at other Swedish universities. This includes services for genomic analysis based on the Illumina, Affymetrix, Agilent, and ABI platforms for sequencing, microarray analysis and qPCR. Our services are extensive and ranges from experimental planning to bioinformatic support. We are also offering services for RNA and DNA purification, nucleic acid quality control and different qPCR based assays.

The corona outbreak has forced us to implement some cautionary measures. We urge our collaborators to contact us before visiting.
Contact info can be found here.
Due to increased cost of reagents and instrumentation BEA has been forced to increase the service cost with approximately 10%, effective November 10. We regret the rapidly rising costs for genomic analysis which is partly due to the increase of foreign currency.
The 10x Genomics Chromium platform is now an option at BEA core facility. The Chromium single cell assays provide solutions for cell characterization and gene expression profiling of hundreds to of thousands of cells. We will initially offer 10x single cell RNA-Seq gene expression and single cell ATAC-Seq as a BEA staff assisted service. BEA will help users to design experiments, provide reagents and service from the initial cell separation step. The chromium controller device, which is used for separating cells and reagent oligos, has been jointly bought by several departments and groups at KI south campus and is placed at ANA Futura. Please stay informed for further updates.
