Overview of Services

KIGene is a well-established core facility that offers genetic analyses, covering Sanger DNA sequencing, gene expression and genotyping, as well as spatial biology and epigenetic analysis mainly aiming at small to medium size projects. 

We provide flexible service levels. For “hands-on” we offer theoretical and technical start up assistance and the users may after that book and operate the instruments themselves. For “hands-off”, the users supply the starting materials and we perform the analysis.

We charge “fee-for-service”. All projects and individual samples are processed in incoming order.

  • Gene expression analysis
  • Copy number variation
  • Rare target detection
  • miRNA profiling
  • DNA methylation analysis
  • Quantity and quality determination of RNA, DNA, protein and dye incorporation
