The firm envisions applying its new PlexSet technology to the upper end of multiplex gene expression analysis as well as CRISPR validation applications.

The researchers also applied their database to impute alleles in the region linked to psoriasis.

Heat-Seq, scheduled to launch in the second quarter, uses empirically tested molecular inversion probes.

The partnership will pair Sophia's informatics infrastructure with IDT's panel to provide an NGS-based solution for routine clinical diagnostics.

The scientists believe they have created a more accurate way to detect mutations that often lead to hereditary colorectal cancer.

According to the researchers, the method provides an alternative to commercially available solutions at a lower cost per sample.

Agilent Technologies and Ambry Genetics have signed an agreement under which Ambry will use Agilent's SureSelect Target Enrichment System for exome sequencing services, the companies said last week.

The 2009 Gen-Probe spinoff has exclusive licensing rights to various Gen-Probe nucleic acid-based tests and instrumentation for use in industrial applications.

With the funding, the company plans to expand into the medical genetics and research markets, as well as grow its global sales and support team. Additionally, it will develop and commercialize products for single-molecule digital PCR and single cell analysis.
