The genetics lab is equipped with cutting edge instruments like the Miseq sequencer, illumina iScan and RT-PCR including all additional machinery. This means you can start and finish your entire experiments all from the comfort of our lab. We offer a range of tests from small procedures like DNA extraction up to sequencing entire genes or genomes. Whatever you want to do, we can offer tailored packages to fit your needs. Our packages mostly include the use of bench space, consumables, equipment, plastic ware and reagents all brought to you at reduced market prices. This is a strictly non-profit organization and revenues are considered donations that are partly used to fund further research in our unit.
We are a team of highly trained and skilled professionals from diverse scientific backgrounds, geneticists, microbiologists, bioinformaticians and pharmacists that come together to form this unit. As such, we have a strong understanding of genetics from several perspectives and you can consult us with your work. We can guide you in choosing the right package and experiment that best fits your work, and at additional cost, we can help you complete your lab work.
The illumina sequencer can support many panels such as cancer panels and costs vary based on the output, coverage needed and number of samples. Please contact us for further details.
