SNP Fingerprinting

Generate a multi locus SNP fingerprint for sample tracking or swap detection

pipettingWe offer SNP fingerprinting service for human samples: a measurement of genetic variation of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). This application can be used for genotyping, gender confirmation and sample tracking.

In our automated SNP fingerprinting workflow we use TaqMan OpenArray technology in combination with the QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System: a nanoliter fluidics platform for low volume, solution phased reactions. We employ the OpenArray Barcode Panel 60, including 57 autosomal and 3 Y-chromosomal SNPs. Per array we can interrogate 45 samples, low input needed (minimal concentration of 5 ng/μl (qubit), with a minimal volume of 5 μl).

Please contact us to discuss the possibilities for your research!

Consultancy Service

For expert advice on your NGS-based research and the possibilities USEQ offers to get the most out of your samples: request a meeting at our consulting hour, each Friday at 1:30pm. Experimental design, technology, platform and library preparation choice, standard bioinformatics analysis, results and follow-up experiments are discussed. The facility manager ensures to bring the right experts from any of the participating organisations to the table.

You can request a meeting at useq@umcutrecht.nl.

NEWS

Nanopore sequencing now available; please contact us for the options!
Due to corona preventive measures we could experience some delays. We will try to minimize it. Apologies for this.
Due to corona preventive measures, sample dropoff access is limited to UMCU staff only. If you are from other institutes, please contact useq and make an appointent so we can personally accept your samples.
NEW: we will add nanostring nCounter to USEQ services in the next few weeks!
PRICE UPDATE: from april 21st we have new prices! Generally 6% lower than 2019.
