Genotypes with arrays

For many species and populations pre-designed genotyping arrays are available. Also customized array plates with validated genomic content from the Genomic Database can be generated easily so that you get exactly the information that you need to answer your research question for example in genome-wide association, replication, fine mapping, and candidate gene studies.

  • There are also arrays specific for Pharmacogenomics, for COVID host interactions and many more.
  • Custom array: Genotyping arrays can be tailored to your specific needs. Choose from human, plant, animal or microbial genome. Contact us for more information!

Sample requirements

  • Genotyping arrays are available for many organism such as human, mouse, rat as well as a lot of plants and domestic animals.
  • The samples should be asessed with Nanodrop, and the OD 260/230 and 260/280 can help us determine if there is chemical contamination.
  • DNA integrity is also very important and it is advised to assess it with Qubit or Bioanalyzer. These services are available to purchase.
  • The quantity needed depends on the different genotyping arrays.

Extraction methods

You may select any extraction method for nucleic acids that works with your samples as long as the end product is clean and pure DNA. Our experience is that column based extraction methods (e.g. Qiagen RNeasy or DNeasy) work best for most samples. For samples extracted with Trizol we strongly recommend a subsequent purification step on a column to remove contaminating substances. If you want, we can provide this service for you. 

More information regarding how to extract your DNA, sample quality requirements can be read here. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask us!
