Reveo, U Wash to Co-Develop Portable DNA Sequencer

NEW YORK, May 8 (GenomeWeb News) - Reveo, an R&D firm based in Elmsford, NY, said today that it is partnering with the University of Washington to develop a portable DNA sequencer based on nanoprobe arrays.

 

Reveo said that the invention is already covered by several issued and pending patents.

 

Babak Parviz, director of the Nanosystems Laboratory and a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, will lead the university's participation in the project.

 

Reveo did not provide a timeline for commercializing the technology.
