The GenomeLab GeXP genetic analysis system was launched this week by Beckman Coulter, the company said in a statement. The system's "patented priming strategy" can overcome biases that limit traditional PCR to a multiplex composed of only a few genes, Beckman said. The system can run in two 96-well plates in 24 hours, with 20 to 35 genes per reaction well, the company said. GenomeLab operates at "a fraction" of the cost of a standard PCR system, Beckman added.

NanoLogix has developed a simpler, faster nucleic-acid extraction buffer called the NanoLogix buffer, the company said in a statement.
