single-molecule analysis

This Week in Nature

In Nature this week: extension to uncultivated virus genome reporting standards, multiplex orthogonal CRISPR-based genome editing approach, and more.

The company is aiming to make its Digital Spatial Profiling technology compatible with NGS and will present customer data from its Hyb & Seq at AGBT. 

The team showed in a study this week that they could detect BRAF mutations in thyroid cancer, and believe the method could also allow blood-based early cancer detection.

The test is the first offered for the Sgx Clarity system, a fully automated in vitro diagnostic platform leveraging single-molecule counting technology.

Researchers funded in part by Oxford Nanopore recently published a study showing nanopores can detect proteins at the single-molecule level.

The immunoassay firm plans to first develop cardiovascular IVDs on its Clarity instrument, followed by assays in oncology and infectious disease.

In a paper published online in Nature Communications today, the researchers described their approach, called single-molecule modification analysis of long reads (SMALR), and tested it on seven bacterial strains.

Single-molecule biology and single-cell genomics are poised to enable precision medicine, writes Harvard's X. Sunney Xie in JAMA.

The Biomarker Development Center will use Singulex's Single Molecule Counting technology to quantify ultra-low level biomarkers.

Stanford University's Karl Deisseroth and Xiaoliang Sunney Xie from Harvard University are this year's recipients of the Albany Medical Center Prize.
