Reducing Errors in Whole Genome Sequencing: It Starts with Library Prep
Blog

The highly complex process of whole genome sequencing comes with a high cost of error. One pipetting or mixing mistake can lead to costly errors downstream. When working with multiple samples, error-free sample handling and proper mixing becomes even more critical. The first step in the process to prepare the sample for sequencing, library prep, is a vital step that, if not done correctly, can lead to flawed data and costly delays.

Using Protein Biomarkers Increases the Chances of Success in Clinical Trials
Blog

Many clinical trials fail due to lack of efficacy. But while some of this may be due to poor target selection during the drug discovery process, it’s becoming increasingly clear that only certain patients respond to treatments. So how exactly does precision medicine increase the likelihood of success in clinical trials?
