Our Services

​Research Consultation Clinic

The CTS Core provides SGH researchers with in-house Research Consultation services that are facilitated by a team of dedicated and well-trained Research Scientists/Fellows. The research consultation service were introduced in 2014 for new investigators to seek advice and clarification for grant writing, study design, results presentation to publication. 

Specialized Equipment Service 

The CTS Core allows internal and external researchers access to the following specialized research equipment from our research platforms for an affordable fee:

1. Applied Biosystems 3130xl Genetic Analyser

The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer is a microfluidics-based platform for sizing, quantification and quality control of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells. Results are delivered within 30-40 minutes in automated, high quality digital data.

8. Millipore Luminex 200


This Milliplex system simultaneously detect and quantify multiple parameters in a small volume of precious biological fluid samples and correlate the data from multiple analytes to reveal complex relationships and pathways of biomolecules using a bead-based multiplex suspension array system.

9. Affymetrix Microarray GCS3000


Affymetrix GeneChip® System is a microarray system equipped with Hybridization Oven 640, Fluidics Station 450 and Scanner 3000 7G with Autoloader. The system is managed by Affymetrix GeneChip Operating Software (GCOS).

10. Shimadzu Nexera X2 UHPLC


Our ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) system, equipped with electrochemical detector (ECD) and ultra-violet (UV) detector, is capable of covering a broad range of UHPLC application demands.

11. AATI Fragment Analyzer Automated Capillary Electrophoresis System

The Fragment Analyzer accelerates nucleic acid analysis workflow through the automation of key steps such as gel loading and sample injection. With a 12-capillary array, it can analyze 12 samples simultaneously from a 96-well plate or tube strips. The instrument can hold up to three trays of 96-well plates at a time, and process the plates/ samples in any order. After separations are complete, nucleic acid fragment analysis is simplified with PROSize Data Analysis Software.
