CNAG is the first genomic service provider in Europe to join Roche’s new CSP Program

The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) –located at the Barcelona Science Park– has officially joined Roche's Certified Service Provider (CSP) for SeqCap EZ Target Enrichment Systems. CThis certification marks the first genomics service provider in Europe to join the Roche CSP Program.


CNAG has completed Roche’s rigorous training program to receive this certification ensuring that consistent and robust results can be achieved using Roche’s sample preparation products. 

“We process thousands of captures a year for our collaborators using well-described processes and analytical competences. Roche’s SeqCap EZ Target Enrichment technology has been a powerful tool in this process, helping us to fully exploit the most important content of the genome,” said Marta Gut, Head of CNAG Sequencing Unit.

“This alliance will help researchers to experiment with a variety of applications and designs without a large investment, and have greater confidence in the results provided,” said Neil Gunn, Head of Roche Sequencing Solutions.

The CNAG is a non-profit organization funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the Catalan Government through the Economy and Knowledge Department and the Health Department. Competitive grants and contractual research with the private sector provide additional funds. Since 1st July 2015 the CNAG is integrated with the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG).

The CNAG was created in 2009 with the mission to carry out projects in DNA sequencing and analysis in collaboration with researchers from Catalonia, Spain and from the international research community. The Sequencing Unit manages a large park of last-generation sequencing systems, which positions the CNAG as one of the top European centers in terms of sequencing capacity.
