M2Gen Oncology-Focused Bioinformatics Support Services
M2Gen has launched oncology-focused bioinformatics support services. Leveraging the results and knowledge gained from the Orien Avatar Program, an oncology clinic-genomics dataset, M2Gen offers bioinformatics services that include paired tumor and germline whole-exome sequencing (WES) analysis with panels-of-normal filtering; tumor-only WES analysis with virtual-normal somatic mutation classification; and tumor-only RNA sequencing analysis. M2Gen said that pipeline analysis is WES and RNA-seq capture kit-agnostic, and uses the most up-to-date human genome reference and gene build.
RareCyte Arv7/Synaptophysin Panel Kit
RareCyte's Arv7/Synaptophysin Panel Kit is a research-use-only dual-biomarker liquid biopsy assay for androgen receptor splice variant 7 (Arv7) and the neuroendocrine marker synaptophysin (SYP) that enables customers to evaluate the expression of both biomarkers on circulating tumor cells from prostate cancer patients. The assay comprises processing blood to slides with the AccuCyte Sample Preparation System followed by staining with the ARv7/Synaptophysin kit and imaging on a CyteFinder instrument. Machine learning-enabled analysis and scoring maximizes reviewer concordance. In addition, the RareCyte platform enables cell-free DNA analysis on the same sample, providing a comprehensive liquid biopsy assessment of tumor status, the company said.
Lexogen QuantSeq-Pool Sample-Barcoded 3' mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit
Lexogen has launched its QuantSeq-Pool Sample-Barcoded 3' mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit. The kit's method integrates sample barcoding and early pooling with the firm's QuantSeq 3' mRNA-Seq kit. Lexogen said the kit accelerates gene expression profiling studies by allowing users to sequence up to 36,864 RNA samples in parallel.
