In Brief This Week: The New York Genome Center; Singulex; and More

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The New York Genome Center announced this week that Princeton University has been named its newest associate member. Princeton's Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics will contribute to the NYGC's work on clinically actionable genomics and science, the center said. And as an associate member, Princeton will have priority access to NYGC's Integrated Genomic Solutions, including next-generation sequencing for exomes, whole genomes and RNA; high-performance computing bioinformatics analysis of sequencing results; data management and storage; and access to NYGC's CLEP-certified lab services.

Singulex said this week that it has been granted ISO 13485:2012 certification by certifying body NSAI. The certification also prepares Singulex to being marketing its Sgx Clarity automated in vitro diagnostics platform. The system is currently undergoing market evaluation in Europe, and the company said it expects to receive CE marking by the end of the first quarter 2017. Singulex also plans to submit the Sgx Clarity System to the US Food and Drug Administration early next year.

German molecular diagnostics firm Gilupi also announced this week that it has received EN ISO 13485 certification for its operations in Germany. This certification is a milestone in the company's development of its medical device and downstream in vitro diagnostics business, particularly for liquid biopsy tests and clinical oncology.
