Instruments at BEA core facility

BEA have different instrument for different applications. For sequencing BEA uses the Illumina sequencing instruments which are generating large amount of sequence data in parallel. The different instruments operate with different operating formats depending on the number of samples and the sequencing depth that is required. For genotyping and DNA methylation analysis BEA uses the Illumina iScan system with the Illumina Infinium microarray technique which provides a large number of different formats and panels. In addition, BEA also provide the Affymetrix and Agilent microarray platforms with many different genotyping and gene expression options for human samples and model organisms.
