Premium

Personalis has launched services for genomic sequencing and interpretation, including its ACE Exome and ACE Genome sequencing services, which supplement standard exome and whole-genome sequencing with additional targeted sequencing to improve accuracy and coverage of medically interpretable regions.

The company also offers standard exome and whole-genome sequencing using Illumina's TruSeq enrichment chemistry and sequencing on the HiSeq 2000 or HiSeq 2500.


GnuBio said it will begin shipping beta versions of its desktop sequencing system in April. The company's system is based on microfluidic sequencing technology and will have a list price of $50,000 (IS 9/11/2012).
