Advanced Liquid Logic

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) ― Manipulating miniature droplets and subjecting them to high temperatures on an open digital microfluidic device leads to evaporation that can seriously disrupt concentration-dependent enzymatic reactions, like PCR.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Headed by a co-founder of Advanced Liquid Logic, startup company Baebies has entered the second stage of Small Business Innovation Research funding from the National Institutes of Health to develop a point-of-care cytomegalovirus assay appropriate for routine screening of n

Applied Biosystems (Life Technologies) has been awarded US Patent No. 8,637,658, "Non-fluorescent quencher compounds and biomolecular assays."

Luminex hit a number of "unexpected speed bumps" in the third quarter that caused the company to miss both its internal and Wall Street's projections, and to lower its 2013 revenue guidance.

Scientists and engineers at Sandia National Laboratories have built a prototype of a modular microfluidic library preparation platform that will allow users to process small numbers of DNA samples for next-gen sequencing in an automated fashion.

Following Illumina's acquisition of digital microfluidics firm Advanced Liquid Logic last month, the company is now planning how it will integrate ALL's electrowetting technology into new sequencing sample preparation products and evaluating what other applications to pursue that

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Following Illumina's purchase of Advanced Liquid Logic in July, GenMark has liquidated its preferred stock investment in ALL but retained its license to

Illumina's microarray business continued to grow in the second quarter, with customer demand for its Omni and Core families of genotyping arrays, contributions from recent addition BlueGnome, and sales to direct-to-consumer genetics firms such as 23andMe and Ancestry.com pushing

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Illumina's second quarter revenues rose 23 percent year over year, the company announced after the close of the market on Tuesday.
Separately, it also announced it has acquired liquid handling solutions firm Advanced Liquid Logic for up to $96 million.

Luminex is developing an automated, handheld, battery-powered diagnostic system based on its xMAP technology to administer both molecular and immunoassays to help diagnose soldiers or provide biosurveillance data at the point of need, the company said this week.
