Partnership Provides Access to Genotyping Market

Apr 12 2017

Through a new partnership with Illumina, Inc. (San Diego), Analytik Jena has gained access to the growing genotyping market where it is offering a production scale solution to provide ultra-high throughput sample preparation in support of Illumina’s enhanced 96-sample Infinium® XT BeadChip.

“This partnership further strengthens Analytik Jena’s presence in the genomics market,” said Ulrich Krauss, CEO of Analytik Jena. “We look forward to working with Illumina and their customers to deploy solutions for ultra-high throughput genotyping.”

The agreement is structured as a co-development and co-marketing partnership to provide a turnkey automated sample preparation solution for the Infinium® XT UHT protocols. The automation provided by Analytik Jena promises ultra-high throughput genotyping, scaling from several hundred thousand to 1 million samples per year. Illumina’s Infinium family of genotyping assays harnesses proven chemistry and the robust BeadChip platform to produce high data quality, call rates, and reproducibility at a low error rate. With the planned complete solution consisting of specially configured CyBio® platforms, scientists will be able to prepare up to six reaction plates (576 samples) with Infinium XT reagents for 2304 or 4608 sample BeadChip chemistries in downstream processes.

“The CyBio® FeliX system will help our customers optimise their genotyping operations with a more cost-effective, scalable and efficient workflow for production-scale genotyping applications,” said Jason Johnson, Senior Director for Arrays at Illumina. “We were impressed with the robustness of the platform and commitment from Analytik Jena to provide our customers with an exceptional experience to continue growing their business with us.”
