Agena Bioscience iPLEX


Notice: The UMGC no longer provides an Agena iPLEX genotyping service as of November 2022. 

Agena Bioscience iPLEX genotyping (formerly known as Sequenom iPLEX genotyping) is a low-to-moderate multiplex, custom genotyping platform ideal for the analysis of between 5-500 SNPs. One iPLEX “multiplex” can contain anywhere from 1-36 SNP “assays”, and is run in one “well” against a single DNA sample. Samples are submitted for iPLEX genotyping in 96-well plates, each of which is run against one or more multiplexes.
