Companies partner to facilitate clinical adoption of Illumina technologies in Asia.

Illumina, Inc. and Kindstar Global  announced they are entering into a strategic collaboration whereby Kindstar will validate and implement molecular assays in their laboratories, leveraging Illumina’s TruSightTM content sets, Infinium® Dx CytoSNP-12 assay and NuPCRTM reagents. The collaboration will enable Kindstar to expand its esoteric and specialty testing services offerings within its network of more than 3,300 hospitals across China.
