single-molecule sequencing

Angstrom Bio is developing a rapid, scalable coronavirus test that uses nanopore sequencing to detect barcoded PCR products.

The firms will conduct PacBio whole-genome sequencing on epilepsy patients to generate variant profiles that can help the development of diagnostic assays.

PacBio will try to take the Sequel II to the clinic in China with the help of Berry Genomics and is open to partnerships globally, including with Illumina.

In a retrospective analysis, UK researchers found that long-read sequencing of HLA genes in stem cell transplantation donors and recipients led to better outcomes.

Roche said the timeline to launch a diagnostic system and assays based on PacBio's technology would be too long; instead, it will focus on commercializing Genia's technology.

The two companies struck a $75 million deal in 2013 to launch a sequencing system and assays for the diagnostic market.
