Utrecht Sequencing Facility

Your partner for Next Generation Sequencing-based experiments

The Utrecht Sequencing Facility is a research infrastructure that provides support for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) based research. We aim to stimulate efficient research and innovation by sharing expertise and providing access to NGS technology. We strive to increase knowledge transfer, enable stronger interaction and cooperation, and optimize the use of resources. Embedded within an active research environment, we support collaborations to achieve scientific excellence.


We provide support for a broad range of services, including NGS, sample preparation, DNA/RNA isolation, SNP fingerprinting and basic data analysis. 
A comprehensive state-of-the-art infrastructure is available, including NGS sequencers, liquid handling robotics, bioinformatics tools and ICT. Currently we operate four Illumina sequencing platforms: NextSeq500, HiSeq2500, MiSeq and MiniSeq. In addition, we provide access to the newest sequencing platforms through our collaborators: Oxford Nanopore for long read sequencing applications, and Illumina HiSeq X Ten for human whole genome sequencing.
