Illumina cBot, Correlagen CardioGeneScan

The assay, Correlagen Diagnostics' first to run on a next-generation sequencer, will cover approximately 300 genes associated with hereditary cardiovascular disease. Going forward, the genetic testing company plans to use the Helicos system for other assays in the areas of endocrinology, neuropsychiatry, and immunology.

Correlagen, which has a CLIA-certified laboratory and is based in Waltham, Mass., plans to use the Helicos platform for new genetic tests that require resequencing "broad panels" of genes in the areas of cardiology, endocrinology, neuropsychiatry, and immunology.
