library prep

FBB Biomed, cofounded by a diagnostics industry veteran, is attempting to develop a blood RNA test to predict COVID-19 disease severity.

The technologies, called non-extensible oligonucleotides and linear DNA assembly, may help the sample prep firm improve existing products.

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit sent the case, which had been thrown out in December 2018, back to the trial court.

The new firm will offer target enrichment assays for clinical NGS testing and develop library preparation kits for clinical tests on Illumina's sequencing platform.

Due out in December, the Magnis automated library prep instrument is meant to be an affordable and easy way for researchers to use Agilent's SureSelect kits.

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