Illumina iScan microarray

The Illumina iScan instrument utilizes Illumina’s BeadArray Technology and provides the fastest scan times for Illumina’s high-multiplex BeadChips. The iScan gives access to a range of applications, including whole-genome, targeted genome, and exome genotyping, gene expression analysis, methylation analysis, etc. 

NXTGNT provides most arrays available on the iScan

Robust methylation profiling microarray with extensive coverage of CpG islands, genes, and enhancers. Used for epigenome-wide association studies.
Infinium XT

Infinium XT is a comprehensive microarray solution that enables production-scale genotyping of up to 50,000 single or multi-species custom variants.

Infinium Global Screening Array-24 Kit

This next-generation genotyping array provides a scalable, cost-effective solution for population genetics, pharmacogenomics studies, and precision medicine research.

Infinium CytoSNP-850K v1.2 BeadChip

This consortium-built array provides comprehensive coverage of cytogenetically relevant genes for congenital disorders and cancer research.

Infinium Global Diversity Array-8 Kit

The Global Diversity Array-8 (GDA) BeadChip combines exceptional coverage of clinical research variants with optimized multi-ethnic, genome-wide content.


Illumina human genotyping arrays offer several advantages.

  • Trusted data quality with widely adopted Infinium technology
  • High resolution for detecting copy number variation (CNV), loss of heterozygosity (LOH), and insertions/deletions
  • Coverage of common and rare variants as well as diverse global populations
  • High-throughput, multiplex array processing
  • Low per-sample cost
  • Integration with Illumina sequencing systems for multi-omics analyses
