library prep

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

The collaboration will use 1CellBio's InDrop system to examine inflammatory and immunological conditions in patients and develop disease profiles.

The acquisition will enable Tecan to expand into the genomics space by coupling NuGen's NGS sample prep kits with its own laboratory automation products.

The two companies hope to provide translational researchers a faster, more comprehensive option for the design and validation of Accel-Amplicon panels.

Advanced Analytical markets CE instruments, reagents, and software for nucleic acid analysis while Lasergen is a next-generation sequencing technology developer.

The companies will develop a portfolio of indexed adapters specifically designed for multiplex NGS and optimized for use on Illumina systems such as the NovaSeq.

The firm is in the process of commercializing an open, optimizable, high-throughput library preparation instrument for single-cell transcriptome profiling.

The agreement combines TTP's Mosquito with AATI's Fragment Analyzer to improve library preparation for next-generation sequencing.

The partners will co-market the GenomOncology GO Clinical Workbench to interpret data generated using Fluidigm's Juno NGS library prep workflow.

Lexogen's QuantSeq pipeline uses a gene-counting approach to analyze transcriptome data, and does not require users to calculate FPKM values.
