10x Genomics Visium FFPE Kits 

10x Genomics has begun shipping its new Visium Spatial Gene Expression for FFPE (formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded) assay.

The assay employs new chemistry that offers researchers the ability to profile the whole transcriptome in sections from archival FFPE tissue blocks. It offers high sensitivity and the same spatial resolution as fresh frozen samples analyzed with Visium. 

The assay comes in two versions with four or 16 reactions per kit.

Swift Biosciences 2S Turbo v2 DNA Library Kits 

Swift Biosciences has released its 2S Turbo v2 DNA library kits for metagenomics studies.

The kit includes a specially formulated PCR master mix that boosts a minimal number of PCR cycles, producing high yields with fewer PCR duplicates. The protocol is available in two formats for adapter and indexing flexibility. It enables manual and automated workflows that are compatible with Swift Normalase technology.

Agilent Technologies SureSelect Human All Exon V8 

Agilent Technologies has launched its SureSelect Human All Exon V8 tool. The firm said the product is a new exome design that provides comprehensive content and up-to-date coverage of protein-coding regions from RefSeq, CCDS, and GenCode. The tool also covers the TERT promoter and hard-to-capture exons. The firm said the new design spans a 35.1 Mb target region of the human genome and delivers excellent enrichment performance for more uniform coverage, as well as efficient and cost-effective exome sequencing.

Agilent offers the new design in three versions: routine exome sequencing (Exome v8); clinical research sequencing (v8 Clinical Plus); and translational research (v8 UTR Plus).
