New genotyping service at Oslo University Hospital
The Neurogenetic laboratory is now pleased to offer the research community its competence in genotyping. The service is optimal for genotyping of low to moderate number of genetic variants.
Aina Rengmark (photo) is postdoc and responsible for the service facility. “Using optimized assays we can offer very competitive prices”, she says. Normally the total price including labor will be lower than the assay costs for the commonly used TaqMan technology.
The lab has extensive experience with genotyping using a semi-automated platform. This service will complement other medium- and high-throughput technologies already available within the hospital. Aina adds that the service will give smaller labs or research groups a convenient opportunity to genotype their samples without investing in equipment and personnel training. “Just send us information on the genetic variants and we will design the setup and run the analysis”, she ends.
The laboratory is located in Domus medica 4, a new research building attached to Oslo University Hospital – Rikshospitalet.
