NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Swiss DNA-sequencing company Fasteris has installed an Illumina Genome Analyzer in its lab in Geneva, the company said this week.
Fasteris said it plans to start offering next-generation sequencing services in June using the analyzer, which was designed by Solexa. Illumina acquired Solexa earlier this year.
The company said it plans to use the tool initially to re-sequence bacterial genomes for local researchers, but also will offer whole-genome re-sequencing, gene-expression analysis, and small RNA projects.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
