The largest genomics facility in Africa
We are have launched of the largest and most advanced state-of-the-art laboratory in Africa and part of our vision is to create the most affordable genomic services to drive high-level science and epidemic response in Africa.
Genomics in real-time to advance vaccines, diagnostics and treatments
Our DNA sequencer fleet includes two Novaseq 6000s, two Nextseq 2000, three Miseqs, two GridIons (ONT) and two large Sanger sequencers. This allow genomic data from humans, animals, plants and microbes to be produced locally at optimal cost.
Supporting Africa and the world on Genomics Surveillance & Epidemic Response
Here you can learn more about how we support many collaborators with genomics, bioinformatics and phenotyping services in Africa and around the world.
CERI provides genomics services for > 20 countries. We have very efficient systems for sample transport, storage, data generation and analysis. Please contact us to enquire about genomics services and pricing.
IDEAS FOR COLLABORATION?
CERI has a collaborative platform with key stakeholders to support the the implementation of genomics techniques in the global south. We collaborate with 100s of partners and are always keen to look for more ideas that can give rise to grants and collaboration.
SHARING DATA IN REAL-TIME
We share our data in real time. SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogen sequencing is provided in real-time to 21 African countries as part of collaborative programs (e.g. Africa CDC/WHO PGI, Rockefeller Genomics Africa, NGS-SA, NGS-BRICS, NIH CREID UWARN, Abbott APCD, etc).
BIG DATA AND TRENDS
We have a large team of data scientists that work closely with national, continental and international partners to provide detailed data analysis – see our publications section
We have access to large bioinformatics servers and the fastest internet ring in Africa in collaboration with the data centre of the SAMRC
CLINICAL GENOMICS & ISO ACCREDITATION
CERI follows ISO15189 accreditation system. At present, HIV drug resistance, SARS-CoV-2 qPCR and SARS-CoV-2 genomic sequencing have been accredited. Contact us for clinical genomics services.
