Helicos Ships Sequencer to Stanford University

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Helicos BioSciences said today that it has shipped a Helicos Genetic Analysis System to Stanford University, marking the company’s second shipment to a customer site.
 
Helicos said in August that it had received an order from a US cancer research center that will use the instrument for research into cancer stem cell biology. A company spokesperson told GenomeWeb Daily News sister publication In Sequence today that this order came from Stanford University.
 
The company shipped its first sequencing instrument to genomic services provider Expression Analysis earlier this year.
