Yourgene Health LightBench Detect
Jun 21, 2022
Yourgene Health has launched LightBench Detect, an electrophoresis instrument to automate DNA size selection and enrichment from samples stored in EDTA blood collection tubes for use in liquid biopsy assays, including noninvasive prenatal testing. According to the firm, LightBench Detect helps NIPT providers to reduce no-call rates by enriching cell-free DNA of fetal origin, which is typically under 150 bp in length. The instrument, which is part of Yourgene's Ranger technology portfolio, also enables fragment length analysis and fluorescence assays for quality control.
