The National Center for Genome Resources has become a certified service provider for target enrichment services using Agilent Technologies' SureSelect technology, Agilent said last week.

Santa Fe, NM-based NCGR provides Agilent exome and custom target enrichment services, with sequencing services on the Illumina platform, as well as analysis services. It also offers sequencing services on the Pacific Biosciences instrument.

To achieve Agilent CSP status, NCGR participated in on-site training and demonstrated its expertise with the SureSelect technology. It joins a number of other certified service providers, including Ambry Genetics, Beckman Coulter Genomics, EdgeBio, Expression Analysis, SeqWright, Nationwide Children's Hospital, PerkinElmer, Fasteris, BGI, Hokkaido System Science, and Takara Bio.
