Stilla Technologies Ruby Chip for Naica Digital PCR System

Stilla Technologies has introduced the Ruby chip, a 'load-and-go' consumable for digital PCR that is optimized for the Naica system. The Ruby chip has adjustable throughput to process up to 96 samples in under three hours with standard SBS plate spacing that is compatible with multichannel pipettes for manual loading as well integration with common liquid handling robots. The chip comes ready to use and preloaded with sealed chambers, enabling the addition of sample mix in a single, foil-piercing pipetting step to eliminate cross contamination and reduce handling.

Dante Genomics Avanti

Dante Genomics has released the beta version of Avanti, software for large-scale variant interpretation and report writing. By running on parallel servers, the web-based Avanti takes whole-genome, whole-exome, targeted panel, and other next-generation sequencing VCF and FASTQ files and produces complete reports within five minutes, according to the company. Dante draws from a catalog of 125 reports to perform secondary and tertiary analysis with the new Avanti software.
