MoGene to Use Fluidigm Access Array for Targeted Resequencing Customers

Premium

Genomics service provider MoGene will use Fluidigm's Access Array sample preparation platform for its targeted resequencing customers, the companies said today.

MoGene, based in St. Louis, purchased an Access Array system to provide high-throughput target enrichment for "all major sequencing equipment," Shaukat Rangwala, vice president at MoGene, said in a statement.

According to the companies, Access Array is the only system that prepares amplicons for resequencing without the need for additional library preparation while providing low running costs and the ability to operate with any next-generation sequencer on the market.

Since 2004, MoGene has been involved with numerous sequencing projects such as transcriptomes, metagenomics, and sequencing the oil palm genome as a member of a consortium including Washington University and Orion Genomics.
