Thermo Fisher Scientific QuantStudio 7 Pro Dx Real-Time PCR System 384-Well Option

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched a 384-well option for its Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 7 Pro Dx Real-Time PCR System. The company originally launched the instrument in the US last November with a 96-well block. With the new option, users can easily switch between 96-well and 384-well blocks in order to change the throughput of their assays as needed.

Neogen and Gencove InfiniSeek Cattle WGS and Genotyping Solution

Neogen and Gencove have launched InfiniSeek, a cattle whole-genome sequencing and genotyping solution. The assay simultaneously yields low-pass whole-genome sequencing and high-coverage genotyping at preselected loci in a single molecular reaction, providing information on genomic sequence, specific genetic traits, and parentage markers. It has been validated to show more than 99 percent concordance with deep WGS. Pricing was not disclosed.

Mawi DNA Technologies NextSwab

Mawi DNA Technologies has launched NextSwab, a plastic swab for high-efficiency nasal sample collection. The company released this product in response to the COVID-19 swab shortage. The swab head has two channels, separated by a septum, that retain the collected nasal material. This can then be released into transport medium with a gentle shake. The swab is compatible with many sample transport tubes and does not require any preparation for specimen collection. It fully releases its contents into the sample transport medium.
