iScan System

Highest Quality, Limitless Applications

Empower your research with a revolutionary high-precision scanner that supports an extensive range of array applications, unlocking the potential for limitless discovery. The iScan system supports Illumina’s broad portfolio of innovative genetic analysis assays for genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, and gene expression profiling.

Innovative imaging systems

Both the HiScan and iScan systems use high performance lasers, optics and detection systems to offer sub-micron resolution and unmatched throughput rates. The result is dramatically reduced scan times without sacrificing data quality and reproducibility. With a high signal-to-noise ration, high sensitivity, low limit of detection, and broad dynamic range, the iScan system produces exceptional data quality for use in any biomarker screening (ex. agrigenomics screening) or any validation study. (ex. validating complex disease studies)

Flexible, Scalable System

The iScan system supports Illumina’s broad portfolio of innovative genetic analysis assays for genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, and gene expression profiling. Automating assay processing with a liquid-handling robot and Autoloader 2.x reduces hands-on time and enables scanning to occur 24 hours per day. Scanners and components are modular, creating a tunable system that can be configured to meet any level of throughput needed.
