Oxford Gene Technology has launched three new Cytocell Aquarius FISH probes for pathology. The FUS Breakapart and FOXO1 Breakapart probes are CE-IVD marked. The TFE3 Breakapart probe is for research-use only, the company said.

PreventionGenetics Comprehensive Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Neonatal Death Panel

PreventionGenetics has launched the Comprehensive Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Neonatal Death panel. The panel includes chromosomal microarray (CMA-ISCA) followed by a 40-gene next-generation sequencing panel in cases with a normal microarray result, or a 40-gene panel of single-gene disorders in cases with negative CMA results. If CMA has already been performed, the company said it offers the NGS panel individually.

Sophia Genetics' SECRAM

Sophia Genetics and collaborators at Stanford University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne have released a new privacy technology for securely storing compressed, aligned genomic data and clinical data. According to the developers, the solution uses 18 percent less storage than existing methods and prevents unsolicited use of personal data by unauthorized parties. Full details of the technology, named Selective retrieval on Encrypted and Compressed Reference-oriented Alignment Map (SECRAM), are provided in a paper that was published recently in Genome Research. The partners have also made the software available on github.
