Sample Prep

The company was founded earlier this year based on an improved method for multiple displacement amplification and a single-cell-variant caller. 

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

HTG will use its EdgeSeq platform to develop a multi-target mRNA assay for Daiichi Sankyo and to profile tumor samples for Centre Léon Bérard.

The single-cell VDJ profiling kit is the first of a suite of immunology products the company plans to launch this year.

The method uses graphene-coated silica particles fused to complementary RNA to register impedance changes in the presence of viruses.
