Illumina iScan System
The iScan system (Illumina) is used for genotyping SNPs or DNA methylation analysis of CpG sites by the Infinium assay.
Sets of SNPs are available for human, domestic animals and crops, for both custom and fixed sets. Appropriate for disease association studies, QTL analysis as well as for detecting copy number variation and loss of heterozygosity. Methylation changes can also be detected making it ideal for genome-wide DNA methylation analysis in the human genome. Specifications for the iScan system are detailed on Illumina’s website.
Range: up to 5,000,000 SNPs
up to 850,000 CpG sites
