Sample preparation

Translatomics or ribosome profiling (RIBO-seq) is the genome-wide measurement of the mRNA protected by translating ribosomes. We can provide you with a genome-wide snapshot of mRNA that is being translated.

Library preparation & QC

Transcriptomics is the study of the complete set of RNA transcripts that are produced by cells under specific conditions. Total RNA, messenger RNA (mRNA), non-coding RNA can be sequenced and quantified.


Genomics is the study of the full genomic material of a cell, tissue or organism. Full genomes or targeted regions thereof can be measured using state-of-the-art next and third generation sequencing instruments.

Oxford Nanopore Technologies
Oxford Nanopore

The Oxford Nanopore sequencers make us of a membrane containing nano-scale holes or nanopores. By setting a voltage across this membrane, strands of DNA or RNA pass through the nanopores making it possible to detect an ionic current. Changes in these currents can be used to identify that molecule.


This portable real-time device for DNA and RNA sequencing allows us to generate 10 – 30 Gb of data. The Oxford Nanopore sequencing technology will be applied for our genomics and epigenomics work, seen its clear advantages as for instance the sequencing of (ultra-) long reads up to 2 Megabases, the ability to perform direct DNA sequencing and the simple and rapid library preparation. Different types of double stranded DNA can be measured as for example genomic DNA (gDNA), complement DNA (cDNA) or amplicons.

Illumina technologies

The MiSeq benchtop sequencer is well suited for smaller projects and thus allows for more focused applications such as targeted gene sequencing, metagenomics, small genome and transcriptome sequencing, and targeted gene expression. Generating 1 million up to 25 million reads, the MiSeq sequencer is ideal for reduced representation studies and narrowly focused applications.
