Roche announced that The Centre for Genomic Research (CGR) at the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom, has officially joined the Roche NimbleGen Certified Service Provider (CSP) Program.

The CGR achieved certification to conduct next-generation sequencing target enrichment services with customer samples using the NimbleGen SeqCap EZ workflow. The CGR facility is the first CSP authorized in the UK to provide SeqCap EZ target enrichment services.

“We are pleased to welcome the highly respected Centre for Genomic Research at the University of Liverpool as Certified Service Provider for our SeqCap EZ target enrichment technology,” said Dan Zabrowski, Head of Roche Sequencing Unit. “This program demonstrates our commitment to providing convenient solutions for our customers. The CGR, just like our other global CSPs, will bring their extensive experience in targeted sequencing to servicing the needs of the research community.”

"The CGR has been using NimbleGen enrichment technology for applications as diverse as human exome sequencing and targeted capture of plant genomes.  We have been impressed with the results and the performance of the platform,” said Professor Neil Hall, PhD, Co-director of the CGR Facility, “We are delighted to receive the CSP status and look forward to working closely with Roche NimbleGen to provide the best solutions for our collaborators."
