Agena Bioscience iPLEX


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.

One 384-well “plate” of iPLEX genotyping may therefore consist of any of the following experimental designs:

1) one 96-well plate of samples vs four iPLEX multiplexes,

2) two 96-well plates of samples vs two iPLEX multiplexes, or

3) four 96-well plates of samples vs one iPLEX multiplexes.

We will work with you to ensure that your samples and plexes are packed as efficiently as possible.
