NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Radboud University Medical Center and NimaGen said today that they have agreed to codevelop target enrichment library prep kits for next-generation sequencing.

Specifically, the partners plan to develop kits based on single-molecule molecular inversion probes (smMIPs). NimaGen will manufacture the kits to be sold under its proprietary EasySeq technology line. Alexander Hoischen, an assistant professor at Radboud UMC, said in a statement that smMIPs have "key advantages, including ease of use and high accuracy."
