Paragon Genomics CleanPlex Target Enrichment Solution
Paragon Genomics has launched its CleanPlex target enrichment solution. The product uses the company's patented amplicon sequencing technology which effectively removes nonspecific PCR products generated during highly multiplexed PCR reactions. This 10-minute digestion step is crucial in achieving high-quality libraries before targeted sequencing, the company said. It removes DNA fragmentation, hybridization, and ligation processes associated with traditional hybrid capture-based methods.
Bionano Genomics Genomic Analysis Tools Suite
Bionano Genomics has launched a new suite of genomic analysis software, Bionano Access 1.0 and Bionano Solve 3.0. Bionano Access replaces IrysView software for Irys users and centralizes all software needed to generate, edit, analyze, and visualize genome maps. It also comes with a powerful variant annotation pipeline that can filter out common variants based on a database of controls, analyze trios or two samples to identify inherited and de novo structural variants, and visualize and export in a dbVar-compliant VCF file for downstream analysis. Bionano Solve 3.0 is an assembly pipeline within Bionano Access that allows users to run SV analysis or hybrid scaffolding. It also significantly improves the hybrid scaffolding application by integrating two genome maps created separately with different nicking enzymes.
Strand Life Sciences StrandNGS v3.0
Strand Life Sciences has released version 3.0 of StrandNGS its flagship, next-generation sequencing data analysis and visualization platform. The firm has enhanced accuracy, precision, and speed. The new version also includes a "one shot pipeline execution option," improved RNA-Seq workflow processing speed, and full support for HGVS notation to support variant reporting and information exchange in DNA diagnostics.
