iGenomX Riptide High-Throughput Rapid Library Preparation Workflow

iGenomX has launched its Next Generation Genotyping (NGG) application for population-scale research, including its Riptide High-Throughput Rapid Library Preparation (HT-RLP) system. The firm said that NGG allows researchers to analyze more than 10 times the number of genetic variants for a fraction of the cost per sample. Specifically, iGenomX's HT-RLP will allow scientists to perform sequence-based genotyping across more than 37 million genetic markers for less than $80 per sample, including sequencing and analysis.
