The following company description is from Reuters:

Illumina, Inc. (Illumina), incorporated on May 16, 2000, is a provider of sequencing- and array-based solutions for genetic analysis. The Company operates through two segments: Core Illumina and the consolidated variable interest entities (VIEs), which include the activities of GRAIL, Inc. (GRAIL) and Helix Holdings I, LLC (Helix). Core Illumina consists of its core operations. Core Illumina's products and services serve customers in the research, clinical and applied markets, and enable the adoption of a range of genomic solutions. GRAIL is engaged in developing a blood test for early-stage cancer detection. Helix was established to enable individuals to explore their genetic information by providing sequencing and database services for consumers through third-party partners.

The Company's portfolio of integrated systems, consumables and analysis tools addresses the range of genomic complexity, price points, and throughput, enabling customers to select the solution for their research or clinical challenge. The Company offers its products and services to various customers, including genomic research centers, academic institutions, government laboratories, and hospitals, as well as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, agrigenomics, commercial molecular diagnostic laboratories, and consumer genomics companies. The Company's products and services enable the adoption of genomic solutions in research and clinical settings. The Company provides reproductive-health solutions, including noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), preimplantation genetic screening and diagnosis, and neonatal and genetic health testing. The Company's technology enables NIPT for early identification of fetal chromosomal abnormalities by analyzing cell-free deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in maternal blood. Its preimplantation genetic screening solution is used with in vitro fertilization (IVF) to determine, before implantation, whether an embryo has an abnormal number of chromosomes. Its preimplantation genetic diagnosis technology determines which embryos are free from gene variants associated with genetic diseases.
