NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Roche today announced that the Centre for Genomic Research at the University of Liverpool in the UK has joined the Roche NimbleGen Certified Service Provider program.
As a result, CGR is certified to perform next-generation sequencing target enrichment services with customer samples using the NimbleGen SeqCap EZ workflow. Roche said that CGR is the first facility authorized in the UK to provide SeqCap EZ target enrichment services.
Roche discontinued its NimbleGen microarray business in 2012 but continued to develop and sell sequence capture products. In April, the company also said that it was shutting down its Applied Science Business Area. BioArray News reported at the time, though, that the sequence capture business would not be affected by the change.
