Cofactor Genomics

The Pinnacle assay for gene fusions and gene expression in tumor samples is the first in Cofactor's new line of clinical RNA-sequencing assays.

The platform will be designed to gather all necessary data from a single RNA extraction, eliminating the need for flow cytometry, genomic sequencing, and expression profiling.

The companies will combine Cofactor's RNA-seq know-how with SII's big data analytics offerings to provide services for pharmaceutical research customers.

The RNA products developer is buying California-based Narus in order to expand into the RNA-based diagnostics market.

The company aims to use the funding to further optimize the technology and support an ongoing early-access program with beta testers.

The firm was named a certified service provider for Agilent's SureSelect Methyl-Seq target enrichment.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cofactor Genomics said on Thursday it has won a contract from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Human Genome Research Institute to identify sites of epigenetic modifications that contribute to cardiovascular disease endpoints.

Cofactor Genomics has moved into new 10,000 square foot headquarters, which will enable it to double its sequencing capacity.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Sage Labs today said that it has partnered with Cofactor Genomics to begin offering RNA sequencing services.

St. Louis-based Cofactor Genomics is gearing up to kick off a sequencer exchange program that would see some customers trading in their up-to-date sequencing instruments in exchange for credits toward Cofactor services.
