Vela Diagnostics Zika Virus RT-PCR Test

Vela Diagnostics has launched the Zika Virus RT-PCR Test to be used on the firm's Sentosa PCR workflow. The test can be used in conjunction with the company's other tropical infectious disease tests. Vela previously launched the CE-IVD Sentosa SA Chikungunya RT-PCR Test and the Sentosa Dengue I-IV RT-PCR Test as part of its Tropical Infections Panel. The Zika test is currently research-use-only. Vela will provide Zika virus primer and probe sequences, positive controls, and other reagents to collaborators who are interested in testing the assay as part of its clinical validation studies, the company said in a statement.

Full Genomes Whole Genome Ancestry Test

Full Genomes, in collaboration with Novogene, has launched GenomeGuide, one of the first whole genome tests for ancestry purposes. The test includes raw data (BAM file), variant summary reports from SnpEff and VEP that are compatible with third-party tools, autosomal and x-chromosomal variant identification files, and mitochondrial and Y chromosome reports (for males). Novogene will deliver high-quality WGS data using the Illumina HiSeq X Ten system, capable of sequencing up to 18,000 human genomes per year at the lowest cost per genome, and will apply its advanced bioinformatics capabilities and expertise to provide variant analysis. GenomeGuide is now available to consumers for $895.
