febit Technology Enables the Conversion of New Sequence Data into Biochips for Gene Expression Profiling and Sequence Capture for Next-Generation Sequencing Within Days
LEXINGTON, Mass. and HEIDELBERG, Germany, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- febit holding gmbh announced today the launch of the first biochip on the market covering the newly published whole mouse genome. The biochip from febit enables up-to-date profiling and enrichment of genes and SNPs of interest using Gene Expression Profiling, SNP-Detection, ncRNA analysis as well as targeted enrichment of genes for Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS).
Professor Christian Koerner from the University Hospital for Pediatrics in Heidelberg (Germany) and customer of febit's new mouse biochip, said: "It will be helpful and an advance for our research to use a whole genome microarray based on the most recent data available which have been published only weeks ago. This array allows the performance of a microarray expression profiling as well as a targeted Next-Generation Sequencing at the current state of the art."
In the near future, Next-Generation Sequencing technologies will lead to a rising number of completed genomes of model organisms and other species of interest, as demonstrated by the updated mouse genome. This accelerated development will generate a variety of tools available in the short term for the application of the new data into experiments. febit's Geniom(R) Technology represents the most efficient option for transforming digital genetic sequence information directly into a fully-applicable microarray and sequence capture biochip. The microfluidic biochips and flexible probe synthesis guarantee instant access to the latest sequence updates within only days after publication or request.
