Clinical Sequencing

At the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics annual meeting in Phoenix, WuXi presented results from a pilot study involving 190 individuals.

Researchers found mutations thought to be associated with embryo development and used them to recreate early cellular life in the human body.

The company also announced that it is launching a new end-to-end clinical sequencing platform. 

Based on a recent survey of 40 labs, the investment bank believes that labs will adopt the new NovaSeq instrument faster than previously anticipated. 

The clinical genetics and genomics testing firm said the funding will help as it seeks to consolidate its presence in international markets.
