US Genomics Places Single-Molecule Analyzers at Four Research Institutes

NEW YORK, Feb. 28 (GenomeWeb News) - US Genomics has placed its Trilogy Single Molecule Analyzer instrument at four research institutions in Massachusetts and New York, the company said today.

The placements are part of an early-access program, under which neither center has purchased the instruments.

The instrument will be used in laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Cancer Research, Massachusetts GeneralHospitalCenterfor Human Genetic Research, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and RockefellerUniversity.


USGenomics' Trilogy platform allows users to detect and analyze individual molecules of DNA, RNA, and proteins without the need for amplification.
