Your NextGen

Sequencing Specialists


Every day, physicians are beginning to include elements of precision medicine into their clinical practice. Patients have also become aware of the power of DNA testing and want the benefits of personalized, actionable genetic information. This is a rapidly growing area of clinical medicine that is expected to undergo continued growth for years to come.

Our clients include small, specialized regional reference laboratories through large multi-center academic medical centers.

We have supported over 50 laboratories in implementation of high complexity clinical testing in the last two years alone. Our DNA sequencing projects have included cancer screening, pharmacogenomics, molecular infectious disease and other targeted conditions.

We have hands-on, practical experience with a full range of NextGen DNA and RNA sequencing technologies including:

  • Illumina MiSeq
  • Illumina HiSeq
  • Illumina NextSeq
  • PacBio RSII
  • PacBio Sequel
  • Ion Torrent PGM
  • Oxford Nanopore

We are pleased to announce that we have recently completed building two genome sequencing centers using Illumina’s NovaSeq platform.

We have curated a network of world-class partners with whom we can engage at all stages of the process. From selection and design of laboratory space to integration of laboratory automation to variant curation and reporting, Blackhawk Genomics provides a fully integrated NextGen sequencing solution. Our team can develop, validate and implement virtually any NextGen sequencing test.

We now also provide medical review and sign-out for those clients who have chosen not to retain full-time clinical genetics professionals.
