The Bay Area firm has built on its enzymatic barcoding technology to deliver a high-throughput, synthetic long-read library preparation technique.

The firm is hoping that researcher-generated data will soon be published in peer-reviewed papers, while it weathers the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mission Bio will use a recent $70 million funding round to develop quality control assays using its Tapestri single-cell analysis platform.

IncellDx is also developing a suite of COVID-19 diagnostic products to answer long-term questions about the treatment of patients still suffering from the disease.   

Coastal Genomics owns the Ranger gel electrophoresis technology to collect specific DNA target sizes, with applications in noninvasive prenatal testing and oncology.

According to the company, the test has shown to be more sensitive and accurate than a COVID-19 anterior nasal swab test in the firm's EUA validation study.

The seven technologies feature different methods, including CRISPR and microfluidics, and can be performed in many settings and with a variety of sample types.

A number of diagnostic labs have considered saliva-based SARS-CoV-2 testing but decided against it, while other groups continue to pursue it.

The tube, cap, and multitube consumables enable SARS-CoV-2 tests on its automated Panther and Panther Fusion sample-to-answer molecular diagnostic systems.

Cities and start-ups are pushing to incorporate SARS-CoV-2 wastewater monitoring into pandemic responses even as basic science researchers scramble to hammer out methods.

The targeted sequencing assay analyzes 12 genes and can be paired with the firm's BRCA gene testing kit.

Users will be able to sequence over 20,000 samples simultaneously with the updated panel, which the firm expects to offer sometime in the third quarter for research use only.
