The iScan System is a cutting-edge, dedicated array scanner that supports rapid, sensitive, and accurate imaging of Illumina's array-based genetic analysis products. The system features a high signal-to-noise ratio, high sensitivity, an excellent limit of detection, and a broad dynamic range leading to exceptionally high data quality. 

At the System's core is the iScan Reader, which incorporates high-performance lasers, optics, and detection systems. The iScan Reader offers sub-micron resolution and unmatched throughput rates. Even the highest density BeadChips can be scanned in just minutes, allowing processing of up to 96 multi-sample BeadChips per day.
These imaging features are especially beneficial for high-density genotyping, CNV analysis, DNA methylation, and gene expression profiling

The iScan System supports Infinium, GoldenGate, DASL, Gene Expression (Direct Hybridization), and Methylation assays along with different multi-sample BeadChip formats
The iScan System includes a computer workstation to control all aspects of the scanner. This automated system provides laser control, precision mechanics control (including focus motor), detection of excitation signals, image registration, image extraction, and data output. Data analysis is supported by GenomeStudio software featuring easy-to-use visualization tools, advanced data manipulation features, and extensive reporting capabilities.
The iScan Reader can be built-out with LIMS (laboratory information management system) and assay automation options to streamline sample tracking and workflow management for large-scale projects

An AutoLoader 2.x can be added to either single- or dual-scanner systems to maximize throughput to thousands of samples per day
