NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Startup SeqOnce Biosciences is aiming to increase the speed and user-friendliness of library preparation for next-generation sequencing.

The company, a 2014 spinout from the University of Southern California, is getting ready to roll out its first products later this year, DNA library prep kits called Rapid DNA-seq that use a proprietary sample prep chemistry the firm licenses from USC. In addition, SeqOnce is developing a metal nanoparticle technology for a variety of applications, including biomolecule purification and targeted sequencing.
