MARGenomics supports researchers during along all the processes of a biomedical research project experimental processes, from experimental design and samples processing to data analysis and results interpretation. The services offered include nucleic acids extraction, Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Microarray processing, quantitative PCR (qPCR), and quality assessment for DNA and RNA samples. Also bioinformatician and statistician analysis are performed in an integrative manner.


The staff has experience working with complex samples such as low input or degraded samples, like FFPE samples.
MARGenomics consists of four different units, which work in a coordinated manner to support researchers and clinicians during the investigation process.

The Extraction Unit is in charge of obtaining RNA and DNA from different sample types (fresh blood, FFPE, swabs…).

The Laboratory Unit (LU) supports researchers by processing samples to obtain different kinds of omics data.

The Bioinformatics Unit also participates in the experimental design and handles all the data processing, assisting researchers with data analysis and results interpretation.

The Consulting Service on Methodology for Biomedical Research offers support on methodology and statistics applied to biomedical research.

The facility integrates resources from both IMIM and Hospital del Mar and is closely coordinated with the MARBiobanc platform.

MARGenomics was accredited for working under high quality standards with the ISO 9001:2015 quality certificate
