NEW YORK – Pacific Biosciences and Asuragen announced on Monday a collaboration to develop clinical and research assays based on PacBio's single-molecule, next-generation sequencing technology. Their initial focus will be on research to support development of a carrier screening assay.

Under the agreement, scientists at Asuragen will develop assays for PacBio's Sequel Systems using Asuragen's AmplideX PCR technology. Assays will make use of PacBio's HiFi long reads, an approach incorporating multiple passes of the same molecule to create a highly accurate consensus sequence.
