Clinical Genomics Lund

Clinical Genomics Lund was established in 2016 as a joint strategic initiative between the Medical Faculty at Lund University and the Division of Laboratory Medicine, Medical Services, Region Skåne. The unit encompasses two centers, Center for Translational Genomics (CTG) and Center for Molecular Diagnostics (CMD) that are fully aligned and operate in tight synergy, but with separate responsible bodies and budgets (Lund University and Region Skåne, respectively). Clinical Genomics Lund aims to provide state-of-the-art next generation sequencing (NGS)-based services to strong and high-profile translational research projects and to implement new NGS-based tests for clinical diagnostics within the healthcare system aiming at broader national coverage and consensus.


We provide expertise, method development and end-to-end service to translational research and precision diagnostics for the development of tomorrow’s diagnostics. Our current disease focus areas are:

  • Cancers (including solid tumors and hematological malignancies)
  • Rare inherited disease
  • Microbial diseases and surveillance


Our national services within NGS and other molecular technologies include development of methods for clinical implementation or translational research with strong clinical utility. These include, but are not restricted to:

  • Consultation (Project design)
  • QC of samples for various analyses (Sequencing data, Genomic DNA/RNA)
  • Sequencing:
    • DNA sequencing (WGS, WES, Panels, microbial genomes)
    • RNA sequencing (total RNA, mRNA, single cell)
  • User access service (DNA/RNA concentration measurements, Sequencing)
  • Bioinformatics (Software support , Bioinformatic analysis (data generated at CG or elsewhere))


  • Various automatic robotic systems (BRAVO NGS Workstation)
  • Various systems for QC, quantification and fragment analyses (TapeStation, Quantification using fluorescent assay (Qubit, Quantit), Agilent Femto Pulse)
  • Sequencing platforms
    • Illumina (NextSeq 2000, NovaSeq 6000, NovaSeq X)
    • Nanopore (MinION)
    • 10x Genomics (Chromium X, CytAssist)
    • Other single-cell equipment (iCell8 cx, Cellaca)
