Our Platforms

At AGRF we offer a suite of genotyping solutions allowing you to customise your genotyping project to the most suitable assay technology on one of our platforms –

  • Illumina BeadChip Array
  • Agena Bioscience MassARRAY
  • Applied Biosystems 3730
  • Qiagen Pyrosequencing

Each platform offers streamlined processing and automation with extensive quality monitoring. Also inclusive of each of our genotyping services are all reagents and consumables and the option for customised analysis.

Our service specialists are able to assist you with the process of determining the best approach and therefore platform to meet your research goals.
