Design Continuum Delivers Lab-Ready Analyzers to US Genomics

NEW YORK, Dec. 16 (GenomeWeb News) - Engineering firm Design Continuum said today that it has delivered five Trilogy Single Molecule Analyzers to US Genomics of Woburn, Mass.

The company productized US Genomics' patented single-molecule analysis technology for installation in laboratory environments, according to a company spokeswoman. Working with US Genomics as well as with academic and pharmaceutical research labs, the company's engineers designed the instrument as a freestanding unit that fits into the laboratory workflow.

The machines, which can process up to 500 samples a day without amplification, will be placed in five life science research labs in the first quarter of 2004.
