Agilent SureSelect Human All Exon Kit for SOLiD

Ambry was certified to use the SureSelect target enrichment technology for next-gen sequencing services.

OriGene gains products for DNA and RNA purification and multiplex assays for genotyping, microRNA profiling, and transcription factor activity analysis.

The company will provide sequence capture services using NimbleGen's technology.

As part of the deal, Heidelberg, Germany-based Febit will install several of Life Tech's SOLiDs and real-time PCR systems in its genomic-services facility, and aims to process around 1,000 samples per week by the first half of next year.

The deal is part of a strategic co-marketing agreement between Febit and Life Technologies, under which Febit has become a member of Life Tech's service provider programs for SOLiD and TaqMan.

The alliance combines Febit's HybSelect sequence capture technology with Life Tech's SOLiD sequencing system.

The agreement, under which Life Technologies will co-market Agilent's SureSelect Target Enrichment System with the Applied Biosystems SOLiD sequencer, follows a similar deal that Agilent signed with Illumina in April.

Scientific & Medical Products gained exclusive rights to distribute a sample prep technology in the UK and Ireland.

By entering the target enrichment market, the Olink Bioscience subsidiary will compete with Agilent Technologies, Febit, Fluidigm, LC Sciences, RainDance Technologies, and Roche NimbleGen.

OGT will dsitribute SciGene's microarray sample processing equipment in Europe.

Affymetrix and Beckman Coulter will develop a platform combining their technologies for automated target preparation.

Scientists from the University of Washington and Agilent Technologies have sequenced the exomes of a dozen individuals, identifying a range of genetic variants that include disease-related mutations.

SeqWright CEO Fei Lu said this week that Lilly is one of an increasing number of pharma customers that have specifically requested sequence capture and sequencing services from the firm.

The method, called primer extension capture, or PEC, is especially suited for capturing short DNA fragments in order to sequence a few small genomic regions in large numbers of individuals. Originally developed to analyze areas of interest in the Neandertal nuclear genome, it might also be useful for other types of targeted sequencing applications.

Agilent Technologies and Febit this week separately announced expansions to their sequence capture product lines, while Roche NimbleGen discussed plans to grow its seq-cap portfolio by year end.
