Standard BioTools X9 Real-Time PCR System

Standard BioTools, formerly known as Fluidigm, has launched the X9 Real-Time PCR System. The automated benchtop microfluidics-based system can perform 9,000 individual nanoliter reactions in a single run, generating up to 46,080 data points per eight-hour shift. The X9 System integrates Standard BioTools' proprietary microfluidics technology, which can reduce experimental costs while accommodating different applications and chemistries. It also has the ability to mix and match assays with up to 96 targets and is particularly suited for use in agricultural genomics and clinical research labs. 

The Scan

Study Examines Insights Gained by Adjunct Trio RNA Sequencing in Complex Pediatric Disease Cases

Researchers in AJHG explore the diagnostic utility of adding parent-child RNA-seq to genome sequencing in dozens of families with complex, undiagnosed genetic disease.

Clinical Genomic Lab Survey Looks at Workforce Needs

Investigators use a survey approach in Genetics in Medicine Open to assess technologist applications, retention, and workforce gaps at molecular genetics and clinical cytogenetics labs in the US.

Study Considers Gene Regulatory Features Available by Sequence-Based Modeling

Investigators in Genome Biology set sequence-based models against observational and perturbation assay data, finding distal enhancer models lag behind promoter predictions.

Genetic Testing Approach Explores Origins of Blastocyst Aneuploidy

Investigators in AJHG distinguish between aneuploidy events related to meiotic missegregation in haploid cells and those involving post-zygotic mitotic errors and mosaicism.
