Bionano Genomics Direct Label and Stain
Bionano Genomics announced today the global launch of its Direct Label and Stain (DLS), a new chemistry for sequencing motif labeling. The kit is a non-destructive labeing chemistry that will improve the firm's Saphyr genome mapping system. Bionano claims that the DLS will also improve sensitivity for all structural variant calls, yielding detection of heterozygous insertions and deletions as small as 500 bp. The DLS kits will allow high-volume users to map a human genome for $500.
