Imaxio Attains CSP Status for Agilent's SureSelect System for NGS

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies said today that French biotech firm Imaxio has achieved Certified Service Provider status for the SureSelect Target Enrichment System for next-generation sequencing.

Imaxio was already a CSP for Agilent's microarray services and participated in comprehensive on-site training and passed a set of requirements demonstrating expertise and skill to receive CSP status for the SureSelect system, Agilent said. SureSelect is compatible with major NGS platforms, such as Illumina, Life Technologies' SOLiD, and Roche's 454.

Based in Lyon, France, Imaxio focuses on genomics and vaccine research and provides services that use microarray technology and next-generation sequencing for both DNA and RNA.
