Mitsubishi becomes first organization in Japan to become an Illumina CSPro

Illumina : 20 June, 2008  (Company News)
Mitsubishi Chemical Safety Institute, a provider of various analyses, examinations, and services for pharmaceutical companies, public institutions, and chemical companies, is the first organization in Japan to become an Illumina CSPro (certified service provider).
Illumina CSPro is a collaborative service provider partnership dedicated to ensuring the delivery of the highest-quality data available for genetic analysis applications. Mitsubishi Chemical Safety Institute offers its customers whole-genome and targeted-genotyping services using Illumina's Infinium and GoldenGate Assays.

Both assays utilise Illumina's proprietary BeadArray technology to provide customers the ability to perform large-scale interrogation of the human genome, which enables them to cost-effectively fast forward their research and identify genetic variants linked to disease.

“For the last seven years, we have concentrated on the investigation of toxicogenomics and pharmacogenomics, and have consequently acquired an abundance of experience in the development of genomic analysis technologies,' said Masaru Sekijima, PhD, general manager of Advanced Medical Science Research Center, Mitsubishi Chemical Safety Institute. 'As a result of this hard work, we are excited to become the first Illumina CSPro in Japan, making it possible to provide researchers with the level of high-quality genomic data customers have come to expect from Illumina.'

Illumina CSPro participants undergo a rigorous two-phase certification process that includes minimum data generation, data certification, and an on-site audit of the facility and processes.

'Interest in the Illumina CSPro program continues to grow with more than 20 academic and commercial technology providers already certified or in the process of certification. Now that Mitsubishi Chemical Safety Institute is a partner, we are excited to work with them to make it easier for researchers in Japan to access the power of Illumina's genetic analysis technologies,' said Karen Possemato, director of corporate marketing at Illumina.
