In the last quarter of 2016 VHLGenetics acquired an IonTorrent to make Genotyping by Sequencing available for all our clients. The purchase of this machine allows VHLGenetics to offer the latest techniques to deal with large scale genotyping.
Using Thermo Fisher Scientific´s Genotyping by Sequencing, VHLGenetics can genotype in parallel thousands of genetic markers for each sample submitted. These markers can be used to establish a genomic database to determine genetic breeding values (GBVs). Also, the technology allows for parentage verification and the detection of genetic variants. These variants include markers that can cause inheritable disease or determine genetic traits like resistance, coat color or milk yield.
To make arrangements for your specific project or for more information about the technology, please contact us.
