Tecan

The partners will launch Zymo's DreamPrep NAP workstation to streamline DNA/RNA extraction for high-complexity testing labs running COVID-19 assays.  

The acquisition will enable Tecan to expand into the genomics space by coupling NuGen's NGS sample prep kits with its own laboratory automation products.

The disagreement began when NuGen filed a lawsuit seeking a ruling of non-infringement of two of KeyGene's US patents related to next-generation sequencing.

KeyGene and its parent firm, KeyGene NV, were named as defendants in a NuGen Technologies suit seeking to invalidate two US patents.

LGC will offer NuGen's single-primer enrichment technology for next-generation sequencing target enrichment.

The companies will integrate Cambridge's TrueMethyl technology for oxidative bisulfite sequencing with NuGen's sequencing library preparation kits.

The collaboration will leverage DiaSorin's Liaion MDX PCR system, and Tecan's Fluent Laboratory Automation Solution to provide users a complete sample-to-result system.

The partners will co-market the Phenomenex Strata and Strata-X SPE sorbents adapted to Tecan's Freedom EVO series of robotic workstations.

The new workflow, which was validated across three separate laboratories in New Jersey, is a critical step toward standardizing the use of RNA-seq in clinical genomics.
