Genome Sequencing

Genome Sequencing

Genome sequencing is a rapidly growing field driving improvements in disease diagnosis, discoveries of new treatments, predictions and preventions of future diseases and the optimization of agriculture plants used to feed our world.  The sequencing process depends on very precise temperature control and very high temperature uniformity over large surface areas. II-VI provides thermoelectric cooler based precision temperature control systems that enable proper cooling of reagent systems and exact temperature cycling of DNA to replicate them using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) process. II-VI also offers low-noise green lasers which are used to excite the DNA to enable florescence imaging.  II-VI’s optical filters can be used to direct and separate the excitation and emission light.  II-VI supports fully custom quick-turn high performance optical filters. II-VI manufactures custom flow cells, objective lenses and precision optical components such as lenses, beam splitters, prisms, waveplates, and patterned optics to address these requirements.  II-VI also delivers vertically integrated system solutions.  Our new product introduction (NPI) engineering team can provide full optical, mechanical and electrical system support from design to volume manufacturing of genome sequencing platforms.
