NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Source BioScience said yesterday that it has opened a new DNA sequencing and genotyping facility at University College London.
The company said that it is collaborating with the UCL Genetics Institute to offer sequencing and genotyping services across UCL for an initial period of three years.
Source BioScience currently operates a central reference laboratory in Nottingham and has additional service facilities in Cambridge and Oxford.
Steve Humphries, director of UGI, said in a statement that Source BioScience is the institute’s first commercial partner.
“A key step in achieving the vision for the development of Genetics at UCL was the establishment of a commercial collaboration to service the existing sequencing and genotyping needs within UCL whilst also providing access to next-generation technologies to accommodate future service needs,” Humphries said.
