GenDx NGStrack, TRKengine for chimerism monitoring

Genome Diagnostics (GenDx) has launched its NGStrack reagents and TRKengine software for monitoring chimerism in a recipient after a stem cell transplant by next-generation sequencing. NGStrack uses 32 indel markers to distinguish between donor and recipient, which cover 362 nucleotide positions across 18 chromosomes, and only requires small amounts of DNA. The TRKengine software interprets the markers and determines the percentage of chimerism. The products are compatible with Illumina sequencing platforms.


Eurofins Technologies GSD NovaType Detect + Select K417N SARS-CoV-2

Eurofins Technologies has launched the multiplex RT-PCR assay GSD NovaType Detect + Select K417N SARS-CoV-2, which is designed to detect the Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The assay simultaneously detects viral genomic RNA and the spike (S) mutation K417N in one reaction. Results can be obtained within one hour.


Codex DNA BioXp mRNA Synthesis Kits With CleanCap Reagent AG

Codex DNA has launched its BioXp mRNA synthesis kits with integrated CleanCap Reagent AG, a proprietary mRNA capping technology from TriLink BioTechnologies. The new kits allow users to obtain large yields of high-quality, capped mRNA. Specifically, customers can now generate up to 16 biologically active mRNA constructs with a median yield of 10 micrograms each from de novo synthesized and error-corrected genes in a single automated run.
