Illumina Infinium


The Illumina Infinium platform is a versatile and extremely robust array-based genotyping platform for genotyping across a wide range of project scopes. Infinium BeadChips – arrays that contain the species- and locus-specific oligonucleotide probes that drive locus-specific assays, are designed for moderate (3,000 SNPs) to genome-wide 5M SNPs) scale genotyping, of either custom or predesigned content. The UMGC’s Illumina Infinium platform includes full automation of BeadChip processing and scanning, permitting high-throughput population-based studies on up to tens of thousands of samples to be accomplished quickly, affordably, and reproducibly.

The cost of a custom Infinium project involves the design and synthesis (by Illumina) of a custom oligonucleotide pool (OPA). The Infinium family of products includes a wide variety of predesigned BeadChips.

Array Kit Selector

Pricing for an Infinium project includes two different components: 1) BeadChip kit (consisting of stock or custom SNP microarrays and processing reagents), and 2) the cost of BeadChip processing, assessed per sample.


The UMGC is a Certified Service Provider for the Illumina Infinium arrays.
