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.

The partners plan to improve yields from small input samples and provide better sequencing libraries.

The agreement will allow Rubicon offer Curio's software as a commercial bioinformatics solution for its ThruPlex Tag-seq library preparation kits.

The firm sold four ICell8 Single-Cell Systems, but noted the sales cycle is longer than anticipated and it is thus lowering full-year revenue guidance. 

By modifying a library construction method, researchers were able to analyze tiny amounts of small RNAs.

At a user meeting in London this week, Chief Technology Officer Clive Brown introduced the SmidgIon and a number of other technology developments, as well as a new synthetic biology spinoff.

Over the next half year, iGenomX plans to roll out its sequencing library prep chemistry for linked read sequencing.
