The assay will combine the company's CytoSort assay with its automated AIR system for imaging, sorting, and isolating single cells and small colonies.

Early Glimpse

The Associated Press reports on early, potentially promising results from a gene-editing trial.

The report advises that although sequencing the genomes of infants can be appropriate in some specific cases, we shouldn’t implement large-scale programs to test healthy babies.

The firm's automated AIR sample prep technology quickly images, sorts, and isolates single cells for downstream molecular analysis.

The groups will conduct a study evaluating the benefits of targeted next-generation sequencing in the diagnosis and care of infants with genetic disorders.
