NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Roche NimgleGen today said that it has named Berlin, Germany-based Atlas Biolabs a certified service provider for the firm's SeqCap EZ enrichment product portfolio.
Atlas, which passed a certification process to qualify, will process customer gDNA samples for genomic enrichment using the complete NimbleGen Sequence Capture Array and solution-based capture workflow. The enriched samples can be analyzed afterward on the Roche GS FLX and GS Junior sequencing platforms, as well as on short-read sequencing platforms, said Roche.
Roche noted that its NimbleGen business recently launched a new addition to the SeqCap EZ product portfolio with SeqCap EZ Choice Libraries for enrichment of custom regions of interest in a single test tube.
Last September, Roche had announced that Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based Ambry Genetics was named a certified service provider for the Roche NimbleGen SeqCap EZ Exome workflow.
