The Geneva-based subsidiary was opened to respond to increasing European demand for the firm's LinkSeq tissue typing test.

According to the researchers, the method provides an alternative to commercially available solutions at a lower cost per sample.

The protocols enable up to 95 samples to be pooled, resulting in a cost of around $40 per sample, including the cost of reagents, labor, and equipment. The researchers are now using their protocol to sequence the HLA regions of 3,000 HIV-positive individuals.
