Microarray data provision

VCGS can provide your diagnostic service with microarray data for your in-house analysis. Our service uses Illumina SNP based microarray platforms and data generated can be analysed using Karyostudio or BlueFuse software. Our data process service includes generating customised cluster files. This means your data is cleaner with tighter quality parameters, making down-stream analysis simpler and more accurate. A full data generation and diagnostic analysis service is also available.
