RNA-seq solution

  • Access to HiSeq 2000 Illumina sequencers of the CNS Genomics Institute in Evry
  • Automation of RNA-seq library construction : Biomek FX (Beckman)
  • Qubit® 2.0 Fluorometer, Life Technologies
  • Covaris M220 AFA for NGS
  • Concentrator Speed-vac Plus System with rotor for microplates
  • NEW : Illumina NextSeq 500


A NextSeq 500 desktop sequencing system will be installed in September on the platform. Its high flexibility (Mid or High Output flow cells) will allow us to select data output levels scaling from a single sample to many samples per run. Moreover, with sequencing options ranging from single 75bp to paired-end 150bp sequences, it will significantly increase our versatility. It will facilitate the study of Small RNAs (miRNA, siRNA, footprints…) or long sequences.


Microarray solution

  • AGILENT Hybridization system
  • Innoscan 900-1µ scanner (Innopsys)
  • Capillary Electrophoresis, Agilent, 2x Bioanalyzer
  • Real-Time PCR, APPLERA, ABI prism 7900 and BioRad CFX384
  • Nano-spectrophotometer, BMG , LabtechNanodrop
