GeneMole, NextGene, EP1

Mole Genetics of Norway has launched two applications for its GeneMole automated DNA extraction system: one is for extracting DNA for genetic testing of familial hypocholesterolemia, the other one for extracting DNA for low-resolution HLA tissue typing.

SoftGenetics has launched a SNP and indel viewer for its NextGene software suite for massively parallel sequencing systems. The new tool permits gene annotation, navigation within the genome, view of variations in nucleotides and amino acids, links to NCBI and dbSNP databases, and the ability to view and export consensus sequence

Fluidigm has introduced its EP1 system for high-throughput SNP genotyping and digital PCR. The system includes an integrated fluidic circuit controller, a standalone thermal cycler, and an end point reader.
