Bright Core

In partnership with UZ Brussel and VUB, Hôpital Erasme, HUDERF and ULB have acquired heavy equipment to perform the high-throughput DNA sequencing necessary for complex genetic analyses; the machines are available on a joint platform called BRIGHTcore, intended for both clinical and research uses.

BRIGHTcore currently uses multiple instrument systems with the related equipment necessary for quick genomic analyses: Next Generation Sequencing (Illumina HiSeq/MiSeq and Ion Torrent PGM) and Microarray (Illumina iScan/Affymetrix Genechip 3000).

The BRIGHTcore team offers high-quality support: the platform has been granted ISO 15189:2012 accreditation by BELAC. It provides tailored advice to researchers as they request projects, array developments, and/or bioinformatics data analysis.
