Agilent's SureSelect XT Mouse All Exon Kit

Specifically, the firms said that Gaithersburg, Md.-based EdgeBio achieved SureSelect CSP status for the Life Technologies SOLiD 4 sequencing platform.

University of Iowa and Baylor College of Medicine researchers reported that they have developed and tested a method that uses target enrichment and massively parallel sequencing to find variants behind non-syndromic hearing loss.

Beckman will offer services using Agilent's SureSelect Target Enrichment System for next-generation sequencing.

According to a company spokesperson, the growth was primarily driven across the two application areas by sales of its SeqCap EZ Exome offering for target enrichment as well as its CGX cytogenetic arrays.

Agilent's SureSelect Kinome Target Enrichment Kit

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the BC Cancer Agency used exome sequencing and transcriptome sequencing, respectively, to find a novel, commonly mutated gene in ovarian clear-cell carcinoma.

Besides SureSelect, SeqWright also uses NimbleGen Sequence Capture Arrays and RainDance Technologies' microdroplet PCR technology for target sequence enrichment.

The deal "provides us with an unprecedented level of flexibility to address the many needs of our next-gen sequencing customers," according SeqWright's CEO.

The alliance may help partner companies Agilent, Fluidigm, NuGen, and RainDance Technologies grab a piece of the sequencing market share that Pacific Biosciences is expected to secure when it launches its third-generation sequencer later this year.
