The Scientist Magazine Recognizes febit's HybSelect(TM) Among the Winners of 'Top 10 Innovations of 2009'
Date:12/2/2009

LEXINGTON, Mass. and HEIDELBERG, Germany, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- febit's HybSelect has been recognized as one of the winners of the "Top 10 Innovations of 2009" by The Scientist magazine. The company's automated sequence capture technology for high-throughput sequencing was selected due to its exceptional combinations of invention, vision and utility.

The Scientist gathered a panel of expert judges to evaluate a broad range of life science technologies and determined the best innovations to hit the life sciences market in 2009. The winners' list includes a variety of products that capture both intracellular and extracellular processes. HybSelect is a robust and automated method for selecting and enriching high-value target regions from the genome that enables cost-effective massively parallel sequencing.

"Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) is an accurate and high-performance technology for diagnostics and has been limited by throughput, cost, data management and automation issues," said Peer Staehler, chief scientific officer of febit. "Instead of analyzing large-sequence stretches of a single genome, researchers using HybSelect are now able to focus on targeted re-sequencing of interesting regions from many different patients in parallel."

HybSelect combines the advantages of microarray-based enrichment with patent protected microfluidic biochip technology and runs on the dedicated, highly automated instrument, the Geniom® RT Analyzer. It allows to conduct large scale clinical studies to identify SNPs and mutations as new biomarkers to receive statistically relevant data.
