Deerac Fluidics Equator™ products are designed to fit a wide range of applications requiring low volume liquid handling. The products have recently been installed as part of the high throughput sequencing production process at the Broad Institute in Boston, MA, USA (formerly the Whitehead Center for Genome Research). The Genome Sequencing and Analysis program at the Broad Institute places emphasis on the development of scalable methods employing automated laboratory procedures and informatics systems. The current rate of sequencing is over 40 million lanes per year, sequencing human, mouse, and other genomes.
This poster will describe the current process employed by Broad Institute, highlighting where the Equator™ has played a vital role in performance enhancement and cost reduction, enabling the Broad Institute to retain its position as the world’s leading genome research institute.
Is Oxford Nanopore Technology Ready for Clinical Diagnostics?Poster
Our objective is to validate diagnostic services using Oxford Nanopore’s Minion in the first instance and to evaluate the cost and performance compared to existing sequencing technology in areas such as tumour DNA sequencing (and circulating tumour DNA), virology, microbiology, genetics and HLA-typing.READ MORE
