Next Generation Sequencing

Next Generation Sequencing

Next Generation sequencing (NGS) represents innovative high-throughput sequencing methods and has revolutionized  genomic research. NGS technology platforms are based on massive parallel sequencing of millions of DNA fragments in a single run and offer a very cost-effective and fast solution to medium-sized as well as large sequencing projects. At IMGM, we have state-of-the-art Illumina and Ion Torrent instruments in place and are offering Sanger sequencing for hit validation to provide highest flexibility according to your project's needs.

The IMGM team is your partner in this highly complex NGS process and can help you in perfectly designing your NGS project. We generate high quality data and offer bioinformatics data analysis to provide you with meaningful information about your samples.  

The broad spectrum of NGS services at IMGM include:

  • Metagenomic sequencing (e.g. 16S, 18S, ITS, shotgun, etc.)
  • Transcriptome sequencing (e.g. Total RNA-Seq, mRNA-Seq, smallRNA-Seq)
  • Targeted sequencing (e.g. single genes, gene panels, specific regions, on DNA and RNA level)
  • Exome sequencing
  • ChIP-Sequencing
  • High resolution HLA genotyping (class I, class II)
  • Whole genome re-sequencing
  • De novo sequencing

♦ compatible with FFPE material

In addition, we offer custom solutions where we use our flexibility and expertise to design an approach that meets the requirements and the research focus of your project.
