Sequencing Technology

The institute is offering whole-genome sequencing starting at $2,800, which includes the sequencing and initial interpretation. 

The deal will allow LifeLabs to perform Natera's Panorama NIPT in Canada and follows a prior agreement for LifeLabs to distribute the test in that country.

The microbial genetics analysis firm said in an SEC document that it plans to offer between 2.5 million units of stock and warrants at between $5.50 and $6.50 per unit. 

Researchers sequenced the European buff-tailed bumblebee and North American common eastern bumblebee, comparing the genomes with other bee sequences.

The deals are with Pronto Diagnostics, headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel and Medica Labs, based in Bangkok, Thailand.
