US Genomics Places Its First Single Molecule Analyzer in Mount Sinai Lab

NEW YORK, Nov. 9 (GenomeWeb News) - US Genomics has placed its first instrument for single molecule analysis in a lab at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, the company said today.

 

The instrument, Trilogy Single Molecule Analyzer, allows researchers to study individual molecules of DNA, microRNA, siRNA, and proteins in a 96-well format.

 

Mount Sinai's Life Sciences Technology Laboratory plans to use the instrument for direct quantitative comparisons between molecules, aiming to develop quantitative molecular diagnostic tools and new therapeutics.
