library construction

The Bay Area firm has built on its enzymatic barcoding technology to deliver a high-throughput, synthetic long-read library preparation technique.

Two companies offering droplet-based single-cell RNA sequencing sample prep, 10x Genomics and 1Cellbio, have launched dual-indexed library preparation products.

Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, the companies have made Diagenode's D-Plex library preparation products available on MGI's sequencing platforms.

Under the agreement, the companies plan to make Swift's library preparation kits compatible with MGI's DNBSEQ sequencers.

The Beverly, Massachusetts-based company plans to use the funding to expand its PlexWell sequencing library prep technology into new areas.

The new firm will offer target enrichment assays for clinical NGS testing and develop library preparation kits for clinical tests on Illumina's sequencing platform.

The partners will combine the capabilities of S2's Singulator instrument for solid tissue preparation and Dolomite Bio's Nadia single-cell sample prep platform.

Due out in December, the Magnis automated library prep instrument is meant to be an affordable and easy way for researchers to use Agilent's SureSelect kits.

X Gen US, a California startup led by a veteran sequencing tools developer, says its kits can create single-cell RNA-seq libraries in less than two hours.

Circulomics, Bionano, Sage Science, RevoluGen, and others have been developing methods for extracting DNA hundreds of kilobases and up to megabases in length.
