NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Dolomite today announced a collaboration with GigaGen to develop a new droplet merger chip for massively parallel single cell genetic analysis.

New England Biolabs said this week that it has licensed single-cell amplification technology from Rubicon Genomics that it will market in a new kit for whole-genome amplification of single cells and low quantities of DNA.

In a paper published this week in PNAS, a University of British Columbia team led by Fluidigm SAB member Carl Hansen described a fully integrated microfluidic device for performing reverse transcription quantitative PCR and measuring single-cell gene expression in hundreds of cells in parallel.

The seminars will showcase the firms' technologies, the BD FacsAria III Cell Sorter and the Fluidigm BioMark HD System.

The firm will use the funds to support development and commercialization efforts for new applications including single-molecule digital PCR and single-cell analysis.
