GenDx's Amplification Primers for HLA Genes Receives CE Marking

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – GenDx today said that its NGSgo-AmpX for amplifying complete HLA genes for downstream sequencing has received CE marking.

The amplification primers can be used for Sanger sequencing and certain next-generation sequencing approaches and is the first CE-marked product for HLA typing for NGS, GenDx said. The product is platform-agnostic and suitable for the Illumina MiSeq, Ion Torrent PGM, and PacBio RS systems, among others.

Last week, the Dutch molecular diagnostics firm announced that it and PacBio would co-market products aimed at full-length HLA gene sequencing.
