Loop Genomics mRNA Transcript Counting and Phasing

Loop Genomics has launched a kit and service for mRNA transcript counting and phasing using its synthetic long-read technology that works in conjunction with next-generation sequencing on Illumina instruments. The kit costs $70 per sample and the service $299 per sample. The San Jose, California-based startup, uses unique molecular identifiers and enzymes to attach the same barcode at multiple positions along one long molecule.
