Bioo Scientific has released its Air DNA Fragmentation Kit for next-generation sequencing. The kit was developed in collaboration with Eureka Genomics and is compatible with the Illumina and Roche 454 platforms. According to the company, its kit achieves 30 percent greater DNA recovery than traditional fragmentation protocols.
SoftGenetics has released the latest version of its NextGene software for the analysis of data from the Roche, Illumina, Ion PGM, and Life Technologies' SOLiD sequencing systems. The new version includes enhanced transcriptome detection and a new pipeline tool for unattended automation of next-gen sequencing data analysis. According to the company, the pipeline tool will automatically query the availability of sequence data, de-multiplex barcoded samples, obtain pre-selected panels for references, and perform data alignment followed by SNP and indel analysis without intervention.
DNA Star has released an upgrade to its Lasergene 9 software. The new release incorporates the Lasergene Navigator, Lasergene Core Suite, SeqMan NGen, ArrayStar, QStar, GenVision, and Protean 3D software components into one package.
