NanoString Technologies nCounter Antibody Drug Conjugate Panel

NanoString Technologies has announced the launch of an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) panel for its nCounter platform. The new panel offers customizable content to help evaluate ADCs throughout discovery, pre-clinical, and clinical studies. It can profile 770 genes relevant to ADC development, including tumor targeting and antigen expression, internalization, payload release, drug mechanism of action, target cell death, immunogenic cell death, and mechanisms of resistance.

Sophia Genetics Clinical Exome Solution 3.0

Sophia Genetics has introduced version 3 of its Clinical Exome Solution application. The new release features a capture-based target enrichment kit as well as what the company said is "enhanced" probe design for better detection of Mendelian diseases from within the entire mitochondrial genome and noncoding variants in 280 specific genomic locations.

EliTech Elite BeGenius System

EliTechGroup has launched a CE-IVD marked, standalone, sample-to-result RT-PCR testing system called the Elite BeGenius. The system boasts a compact footprint, ease-of-use, and total automation, and performs up to 24 tests per run. 

Lybe Scientific NAxtra Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit

Lybe Scientific, a startup commercializing nanoparticle-based technology developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, has launched its first product with CE marking, the NAxtra nucleic acid extraction kit, a magnetic bead-based technology intended for viral RNA extraction from human nasopharyngeal and/or oropharyngeal swab samples. The kit should be used for the isolation and purification of viral RNA when preparing clinical samples for downstream molecular diagnostics, and is intended for use by clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained in magnetic bead-based nucleic acid purification and in vitro diagnostic procedures, the company said.
