The institute recently launched rapid genome sequencing for critically ill newborns and plans to test genomic sequencing in several programs and clinical trials.

The institute will use Omicia's Opal Clinical system to achieve its goal of a 24-hour turnaround time for large-scale genome testing in its intensive care units.

Omicia will use the proceeds to accelerate product development, expand sales and marketing, and extend variations of its flagship Opal Clinical platform for NGS data analysis.

Congenica and Omicia have signed contracts to interpret data from the first 8,000 patients in the UK's 100,000 Genomes Project.

Genomics England has selected Congenica, Omicia, NantHealth, and WuXi Nextcode to provide clinical interpretation services for rare diseases and cancer
