Beckman Coulter Genomics Gets CSP Status from Agilent

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies today said that Beckman Coulter Genomics, the genomics services subsidiary of Beckman Coulter, has been named a Certified Service Provider for the Agilent SureSelect Target Enrichment System.

Agilent said that Beckman is now certified to perform SureSelect target enrichment upstream of both the Applied Biosystems SOLiD and Illumina Genome Analyzer sequencers. The SureSelect enables researchers to focus on genomic regions of interest rather than sequencing the entire genome, thereby increasing the speed and cost-efficiency of next-generation sequencing, said Agilent.

Beckman Coulter Genomics already serves as a CSP for Agilent SurePrint microarrays.
