New Products: SoftGenetics' NextGene; Multiplicom's Cancer Kits

Premium

SoftGenetics has released the latest version of its NextGene software for analyzing next-generation sequence data. The new release includes optimized algorithms that increase turnaround time by up to 60 percent; a new algorithm for CNV detection; the ability to include CSOMIC and ESP databases; and advanced reporting that includes target region coverage curve and statistics, the ability to create summary reports in PDF format, and the ability to save consensus SNP and sequence reports.


Multiplicom had launched three mutation-detection kits based on the company's proprietary MASTR technology. The three kits, which detect mutations common in gastro-intestinal track, colon, lung, and skin cancers, can be used in combination with all next-gen sequencing systems.
