Whole Genome Coverage

Standard panel testing looks at less than 0.1% of your genome1, leaving lots of room for unanswered questions. Our whole genome sequencing platforms provide an extensive analysis of patient’s genomic makeup, including complex mutations (structural variants, copy number variants, variants in non-coding areas) that are not covered by other panel and exome sequencing tests.

Targeted Panel Sequencing

< 0.1 %

Genome-wide coverage

  • Limited number of point mutations
  • Limited copy number variations
  • Limited structural variations

Whole Exome Sequencing

1 – 2 %

Genome-wide coverage

  • Limited number of point mutations
  • Limited copy number variations
  • Limited structural variations
  • Non-coding areas not covered

Whole Genome Sequencing

> 99 %

Single-Cell Services

Achieve the highest-quality data with the NovaSeq 6000 Sequencing System and latest Illumina technologies to analyze your samples at a single-cell level. Services include:

  • Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq):
    • Our scRNA-seq services use NGS technology to analyze gene expression in individual cells, enabling the study of complex cell processes and the identification of cellular heterogeneity and rare cell populations. Unlike bulk RNA sequencing, which provides average values by combining various cells, ScRNA-seq separates a group of cells into single cells for analysis. This approach is particularly valuable for investigating live tissues, which are composed of diverse cell types with unique functions and heterogeneity between subpopulations of cells.
  • Single-nucleus RNA-sequencing (snRNA-seq):
    • Our single cell nucleus RNA sequencing technology overcomes limitations in analyzing sensitive cells that are easily damaged or difficult to separate. By analyzing the transcriptome of a single nucleus, this method eliminates stress and bias that may occur during single-cell separation. Unlike scRNA-seq, which works best with fresh tissue samples, single cell nucleus RNA sequencing allows for analysis of frozen samples and transcription from tissues that are difficult to separate.
  • Single-cell immune profiling (TCRs, BCRs):
    • Our single cell immune profiling services utilize VDJ and VJ gene sequencing to analyze the diversity of clonotypes at the single-cell level, allowing for precise immune profiling of T cell receptors and B cell receptors.
  • Single-cell ATAC-sequencing:
    • Our single cell ATAC sequencing technique uses transposase to assess genome-wide chromatin accessibility by inserting sequencing adapters into open chromatin regions. This approach analyzes the DNA release information in a single nucleus while mapping binding sites of transcription factors and nucleosome locations. By identifying cell-specific binding sites and activity of transcription factors, researchers can gain insights into cell-specific functions when analyzing a single cell.
