Applied Biosystems SOLiD System Named Life Science Innovation of the Year : The Scientist Magazine Cites the Technology's High Throughput, Lower Sequencing Cost, and Rapid Technology Innovation for Unlocking New Approaches to Clinical Research
Date:12/4/2008

Applied Biosystems, part of Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:LIFE), a provider of innovative life science research and discovery solutions, today announced that its technology for next-generation genomic analysis, the SOLiD™ System, has been named the Life Science Innovation of the Year for 2008 by The Scientist, a leading scientific publication focused on the life science industry. In making the announcement of the first-ever Life Science Innovation of the Year Award, the publication recognized new technologies that represent a combination of invention, vision and utility during the past year.

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Business Wire EON) December 4, 2008 -- The SOLiD System received the top award based upon its ability to significantly reduce the cost of DNA sequencing, which will enable basic and clinical researchers who may not have previously considered genomic approaches to re-evaluate their experimental workflow. The technology, which was commercially launched in October of 2007, is defining a new industry standard in DNA sequencing by delivering a combination of high throughput, unmatched accuracy, and low cost per project that was previously unavailable in the life science community. For instance, scientists from Life Technologies used the SOLiD System earlier this year to sequence an entire human genome for $60,000, establishing the lowest cost ever reported for a sequencing project, shattering the $100,000 industry milestone.

The SOLiD System continues to rapidly evolve, with the latest version of the platform – SOLiD 3 System – setting new standards with significantly higher sample throughput. The new system, which is to be launched in early 2009, will yield more than 20 gigabases of mappable sequence data, or 400 million tags per run. This vast improvement in data output per run is expected to further decrease the cost of genomic sequencing for multiple applicat
