Bionano Genomics Sample Prep Kits, Chips, and Instrument Software

Bionano Genomics has launched new versions of its sample prep kits, chips, and instrument software. The Bionano Prep SP-G2 kit offers higher gDNA quality, improved ease-of-use, and increased DNA throughput. The Bionano Prep Direct Label and Stain-G2 (DLS-G2) kit offers increased reagent stability and labeling efficiency, according to the company, resulting in a significantly faster sample-to-results workflow. The Saphyr Chip G3.3, a new version of the instrument control software (ICS v5.3), and a new version of Bionano Access enable improved throughput and success rates when two Saphyr Chips are loaded in parallel, allowing three to six more samples to be processed per work week, the company said.
