The two firms aim to bring down costs and turnaround time with two newly-launched sequencing tests for respiratory pathogens, RVOP 2 and Explify RPIP.

The Swiss-American bioinformatics company touts its networks of multimodal data and numerous partnerships as it looks to support "data-driven medicine."

Under the non-exclusive deal, Oxford Nanopore can include the technology, which targets long DNA fragments, in its nanopore sequencing products.

The workflow combines Swift's Adaptase technology and RNA library kits with Arbor's myBaits technology for hybridization-based target enrichment of the virus.

The cancer test developer will use the funding to commercialize its enrichment-based NGS panels. An IVD test also got CE marked.

The firms have entered into a strategic partnership to integrate their respective amplicon-based target enrichment technologies for use in NGS testing.

With the partnership, the companies aim to help researchers streamline their workflows from sample collection to enrichment to interpretation. 

The collaboration will combine Twist's target enrichment and sample library preparation kits and Miroculus' Miro Canvas microfluidics system.

The firm also recently released the results of collaborations with Admera Health and RareCyte that used its multiplex PCR-based target enrichment technology.

MGI Tech will market Pillar Biosciences' Onco/Reveal NGS panels alongside its high-throughput, automated library prep systems outside the US.
