single-cell genomics

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

Specialized single-cell "cores" are popping up to help scientists get the most out of new technologies.

The method allows analysis of copy number at the individual cell level with greater coverage uniformity and more reliable detection than other approaches.

Sales of Helios instruments and genomics analytical consumables were lower than expected, pulling down revenues.

The researchers will use single-cell genomics and other approaches to generate information that could ultimately be used to diagnose, monitor, and treat disease.

The planned solution will enable secondary and tertiary analysis and visualization of single-cell sequence data.

Bio-Techne has also agreed to pay up to an additional $75 million if Advanced Cell Diagnostics achieves certain milestones.

The Food Allergy Science Initiative seeks to supply the basic scientific research needed to spur future development of diagnostics and therapeutics.
