Scientists at Münchner Leukämielabor, a large leukemia diagnostic laboratory in Germany, have developed a gene panel to analyze acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes using RainDance's single-droplet PCR and Illumina's MiSeq.

The panel, which covers almost 30 genes and was developed by MLL in collaboration with RainDance, is currently being validated and is expected to enter clinical use next month. It will complement MLL's other sequencing-based assays, which run on the 454 GS FLX and GS Junior as well as on Sanger sequencing instrumentation.
