Even small clinical pathology laboratories could afford this new miniaturized gene sequencer
Is the profession of pathology and clinical laboratory medicine ready to deal with point-of-care DNA sequencing technologies? A company in the United Kingdom says that, as early as next year, it can bring a portable high-throughput unit to market that will sell for around US $900.
Researchers at Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd. (ON) have developed new-generation sequencing technology that uses nanopores to deliver ultra-long, read-length, single molecule sequence data, the company stated in a press release. And it does this with competitive accuracy on a high-throughput electronic platform. (more…)
