NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Vela Diagnostics said today that its Sentosa SX Cell-free DNA Kit is now CE marked for in vitro diagnostics use.

The kit is designed to run on the Sentosa SX101 instrument, and enables extraction of circulating cfDNA from human plasma, for use in next-gen sequencing and real-time PCR workflows.

According to Vela, its technology has a high recovery efficiency for DNA fragments of about 170bp, and allows the recovery of low-frequency variants. Automated sample extraction takes approximately 3.5 hours with 20 minutes of operator hands-on time.

Rhythm Pharmaceuticals and Genomenon will discuss their efforts to assemble a database of mutations associated with rare genetic disorders of obesity, and how this was optimized to facilitate a deep understanding of the variant landscape of melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R)-pathway genes. This database may help identify MC4R-pathway deficient individuals who might benefit from future precision therapies.
