Service Overview

The Sequencing laboratory operates under Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) standards and provides services to clients in the academic, industrial, and pharmaceutical communities. All operations are conducted following Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and all experiments workflows are documented in a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). The Pharmacogenomics Centre is equipped with the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq technologies giving a broad range of experimental design possibilities from whole genome sequencing to small targeting sequencing. As part of its core expertise, the Pharmacogenomics Centre posses a Bioinformatics team allowing a complete service from the data analysis, interpretation to data reporting.

When required the Pharmacogenomics Centre offers sequencing project evaluation and planning.
