Cofactor Genomics

St. Louis, Missouri, US

Cofactor Genomics is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) formed in 2008 with a vision to fill the gap of beginning-to-end sequencing in an industry full of ill-fitted, piecemeal solutions.

Our team of experts boasts decades of collective experience working in the Technology Development Group at the Genome Center at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. We currently work with some of the largest life-science, pharmaceutical, agriculture, and biofuels companies in the world.

Cofactor is not a sequencing company. Cofactor is a client focused CRO that uses its multiple sequencing platforms and in-house bioinformaticians to execute experimental design. Our clients are professionals that demand results as opposed to requiring data.

Cofactor has completed more than 3,000 projects to date and has provided unparalleled products, services, and solutions. All of our clients' projects benefit from the... Show more »

Cofactor Genomics is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) formed in 2008 with a vision to fill the gap of beginning-to-end sequencing in an industry full of ill-fitted, piecemeal solutions.

Our team of experts boasts decades of collective experience working in the Technology Development Group at the Genome Center at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. We currently work with some of the largest life-science, pharmaceutical, agriculture, and biofuels companies in the world.

Cofactor is not a sequencing company. Cofactor is a client focused CRO that uses its multiple sequencing platforms and in-house bioinformaticians to execute experimental design. Our clients are professionals that demand results as opposed to requiring data.

Cofactor has completed more than 3,000 projects to date and has provided unparalleled products, services, and solutions. All of our clients' projects benefit from the constant feedback process of “build, measure, learn” that is ingrained at Cofactor in our beginning-to-end service. This feedback optimization process has created our service and products, and is simply not possible in non-CRO firms that are exposed to only a small aspect of the entire process (just sample prep, just sequencing, just analysis... or even design without industry experience).

Low-input RNA Expression Characterization

Precious biological samples resulting from Laser capture microdissection (LCM), Low numbers of sorted cells, Fine needle aspirate biopsies (FNAs), Other small snap-frozen tissue biopsies often yield very minimal, yet high-quality RNA (< 250 ng).

Cofactor has developed this robust amplification protocol to allow unbiased interpretation of transcriptome data from as low as 10-20 cells (100 pg of RNA).

Our picoRNA offering ensures:
Minimized amplification bias
Focused analysis of mRNA/poly-adenylated species
Accurate representation of the transcriptome, even at low input

With this approach you can avoid pooling biological replicates, interrogate previously inaccessible low-input samples, and trust the picoRNA results from your samples.

miRNAble
Small RNA Expression Characterization from total RNA

Standard RNA-seq experiments use size selection steps which do not retain small RNA molecules. In order to ensure this information is accessed, fragment size monitoring and size selection is required. Cofactor’s small RNA characterization is optimized for total RNA samples*, which streamlines sample delivery for you.

Cofactor’s miRNAble ensures:
Enrichment of small RNA molecules including miRNA, snoRNA, and more.
Economical read depth (10 million reads) ensures high coverage of desired molecules.
Annotation using comprehensive database and comparative expression analysis.

*Note: Total RNA must be extracted using an approach that retains small RNA. Please contact us to discuss appropriate extraction methods.

FFPExact
Low-quality RNA Expression Characterization from FFPE and Fresh/Frozen HMR

With the vast majority of patient samples and clinical archives stored as formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks, a reliable solution for chemically-modified and fragmented RNA from FFPE is required.
For samples with >250 ng of RNA, our FFPExact pipeline first evaluates RNA fragmentation via DV200 analysis, then applies standardized library prepara­tion protocols to guarantee reproducible, interpreta­ble results from these valuable samples.

FFPExact delivers:
Non-biased analysis of fragmented RNA
Minimization of reads lost to ribosomal content
Access to valuable clinical archives and patient samples

Think your samples won’t yield >250 ng of total RNA? Afraid your low-input samples may be fragmented? Request our RNAccess protocol. Also, check out our standard mRNA sequencing and total RNA sequencing services for high quality and quantity RNA.
