Resequencing & Amplicons

Just interested in specific regions?

A complete portfolio for re-sequencing regions of any size.

Choose from two basic approaches to re-sequence specific regions based on the size of the region and the sample number.


Amplicon Sequencing »

Small regions are preferably amplified and the resulting PCR products (amplicons) are sequenced with NGS to facilitate the detection of genetic variations or metagenome analysis. Thanks to multiplexing approaches, several amplicons from several samples can be analysed in parallel to reduce costs per sample.


Sequence Capture »

Selectively enrich any genomic regions from full-complexity genomic DNA with sequence capture. It is the ideal solution for customised regions of interest starting with 50-100 kbp. The sequence capture protocols use in-solution high density oligonucleotide probes that overlap the target of interest.


Exome Sequencing »

Predesigned exomes are available from Roche NimbleGen, Agilent, and Ion AmpliSeq. Eurofins Genomics offers the enrichment with the newest available exome versions, sequencing, and data analysis as a convenient package.

An online ordering option for Amplicons is also available. Learn more.
