Data-management company IBDS has launched Omics Workbench, a platform for analyzing next-generation sequence data. The web-based workbench analyzes gene expression data and copy number variation from both next-gen sequencers and microarrays. For analyzing next-gen sequence data, the workbench focuses on highlighting genetic variants between cohort groups and providing supporting annotation, according to the company.

GE Healthcare
has launched ExoStar for the enzymatic removal of unincorporated primers and nucleotides from PCR and sequencing reactions. The kit contains two enzymes — exonuclease 1 and alkaline phosphatase — that are designed to work together and digest primers without degrading target PCR products, according to the company.
