Illumina Applications

All whole-genome Infinium products start with a broad set of tag SNPs derived from the International HapMap Project, providing unrivaled coverage and uniformity across the genome. Other valuable coverage includes SNPs within 10kb of RefSeq genes, non-synonymous SNPs, ADME SNPs, and SNPs found in the MHC region. With median marker spacing down to 1.5kb, Infinium HD BeadChips are a powerful tool for structural variation discovery and support cytogeneticists interested in high-resolution breakpoint mapping.
With the Infinium MethylationEPIC BeadChip Kit, researchers can interrogate over 850,000 methylation sites quantitatively across the genome at single-nucleotide resolution. Multiple samples, including FFPE, can be analyzed in parallel to deliver high-throughput power while minimizing the cost per sample.
