"Technology Center for Genomics & Bioinformatics have always delivered high quality genomic data when contracted for our research projects. I would strongly recommend contracting their services for your own research projects."
"Great experience with this company. I will definitely send samples again."
"As indicated previously, my experience with the Technology Center for Genomics & Bioinformatics has been excellent: good time turn over to perform RNA-seq, good communication and feedback and excellence in professionalism. I will continue to use this core."
"The people we were working with were professional and quick. The output data were of good quality, we've specially checked that twice."
"Very helpful and very supportive of the current and future research 1 thank you Fawzia Bardag-Gorce, PhD."
"The work provided by the Technology Centre for Genomics & Bioinformatics was excellent. Results were provided quickly, all my questions were answered in details through the Science Exchange website which I found easy and convenient to use. Downloading of the original files was also easy. I will definitely work again with this team.

"Very pleased with TCGB. Fast, easy to work with, and very responsive to questions!"
"They were really efficient in the job!!"
"Very fast and professional"
"Quickly and good service"
"The quality of sequencing is good."
"Professional attitude. Extremely fast turnaround time. High Quality Data. Affordable price."
"Very quick TAT and good service."
"the CMC team is very professional, high efficiency and high quality sequencing results. highly recommend."
"Science Exchange was an unknown entity to me when I first heard of their services. Overall, their excellent, rapid, and repeated communication were the key aspects of what became an extremely valuable RNA-Seq study. Based on their rapid and effective communication as well as cost for services, we next engaged them in analysis of our data. This was also a fast and effective study. We have plans to use their services in another study in the coming months."
"Great service and quick turnaround."
"fast turnaround, high-quality data, quick and professional responses"
"Great job and rapid turnaround!!"
"The quality service should be fast, cost-effective, and friendly support and communication. UCLA Clinical Microarray Core facility has them all. Thanks."
"Very fast turn around. Good job."
"UCLA's Clinical Microarray Core was fantastic! The director of the facility spent time directly on my order and I am very satisfied. All of the folks from this facility were professional and I would highly recommend this group."
"ABSOLUTELY. We are so pleased with our interactions with Xinmin and his staff who were responsive, friendly, helpful, and thorough. We work in a non-model organism that requires outside-the-box thinking; Xinmin was enthusiastic and attentive to our unique concerns. Our project was completed in FIVE days when other facilities quoted 4 - 6 weeks. We will certainly be working with the Clinical Microarray Core for all future RNA seq projects."
"Xinmin's Lab runs very efficient and communicates friendly! Highly recommend!"
"Highly recommended! Excellent service at a reasonable price."
"We analyzed the NGS data and are very happy with the speed of delivery and quality of the data generated by the UCLA Clinical Microarray Core. For NGS we would definitely choose UCLA again."
My current supervisor, Mikael Sigvardsson, professor in Experimental Hematology, LInköping University, Sweden, mediated the contact since we needed help to analyze small amounts of DNA with ChIP-seq.
The staff has been very helpful and they are also extremely skilled at what they do since library preparation and deep sequencing from DNA amounts to small to measure with standard methods. Moreover, the service has been fast provided and during all the time there has been a very good communication.
As mentioned above I have extremelu well appreciated the experience to work with the Clinical Microarray Core and I have, as a customer felt very important and well handled. Moreover, I feel that I work with very good scientists that take their job very serious and I would therefore any day of the week recommend the Clinical Microarray Core at UCLA to anyone who are in need of such service.

I have worked with the CMC for the past 5 years. Dr. Li and Jamie Zhou are absolutely indispensable when it comes to performing microarray or NGS experiments. Consistently, the service they provide is honest, expedient and of the highest quality. On a few occasions, the samples I submitted were of too poor quality to be used; Dr. Li and Jamie immediately contacted me to know how I wished to proceed, thus avoiding wasted time and money. On a more personal note, they and the CMC staff are just wonderful people to work with that will go to the ends of the Earth to help generate quality data. This dedication and passion are rare qualities and should be treasured; I will continue to work exclusively with Dr. Li, Jamie and the CMC as long and I have sequencing needs!
I am a Senior Research Associate in the Cornea Genetics Laboratory at UCLA, directed by Dr. Anthony J. Aldave. We have used the UCLA Clinical Microarray Core (CMC) services on numerous occasions over the last two years.
We've had RNA and DNA processed through the core and have utilized a number of their technology platforms. For gene expression we used the Affymetrix 1.1ST arrays. We've also used the Affymetrix CytoScanHD array for both copy number analysis and genotyping, the latter of which we are using for relatedness analysis between supposed unrelated individuals. Lastly, we've utilized their DNA-seq capabilities (Illumina Hi-Seq) for both whole exome and region capture sequencing. We plan on using their services for RNA-seq in the near future. All of the data that we've received has been of the highest quality. Dr. Li and his staff have also been very helpful with questions that we have had, both before pursuing a particular approach and after receiving the data.
We've also attended two courses on data analysis and a seminar on utilizing third-party software for the analysis of our data. These have been instrumental in our ability to analyze our data in a manner that allows us to make the most biologically meaningful conclusions.
Probably most importantly, the data received from the core are directly leading to the publication of important findings into the genetics and functional processes underpinning the development of several corneal dystrophies.
I have been most impressed with Dr. Li's willingness to sit down with me to discuss experimental design, so that we are making the most experimentally valid and cost-effective choices. I highly recommend the UCLA Clinical Microarray Core
