Popular Genetic Analysis Applications

Illumina offers technologies designed to make genetic analysis accessible to everyone. Using powerful, proven Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray solutions, researchers can read and understand genetic variations at new depths, more easily and quickly than before, enabling a wide variety of genomics applications. As a result, discoveries that were unimaginable even a few years ago are now becoming routine.

Enabling genetic analysis

Genotyping is a popular and effective way to screen for SNPs and structural variations across the genome. Illumina technology offers accuracy, reproducibility, and content selection flexibility.

Gene Expression Analysis

Illumina sequencing technologies enable characterization of  RNA transcripts within a given sample for high-quality gene expression analysis.


Illumina offers a broad portfolio of simple-to-use, cost-efficient epigenetic analysis tools for studying epigenetic modifications and their impact on gene regulation.

CRISPR Genome Editing

NGS enables researchers to discover CRISPR genome editing off-target effects, confirm gene knockouts, and assess the functional impact of edits.
