NuGEN Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. Announces Commercial Introduction of Ovation SoLo RNA-Seq System

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. announced the launch of the Ovation SoLo RNA-Seq System, the company’s latest tool in its suite of sample preparation products supporting research in areas previously hampered by sample input limitations such as single cells and liquid biopsy. The Ovation SoLo kit will facilitate research in areas such as blood-borne biomarkers, cellular heterogeneity, and the study of single cell transcriptomics. Ovation SoLo provides a complete end-to-end solution for whole transcriptome analyses starting directly from cells or isolated RNA. The result is the most comprehensive cellular data and the best biology from the broadest range of input levels in samples with limited RNA quantity including single cell, liquid biopsy, and other low input RNA samples. The system features an improved method for ribosomal depletion of > 90%, efficient cDNA generation from ultra-low inputs that provides a complete representation of the entire transcriptome, and the capability to unambiguously identify PCR duplicates.

NuGEN Technologies Launches Enhanced Target Enrichment Technology Allowing More Comprehensive and Efficient NGS Analysis of Cancer Samples

NuGEN Technologies launched a sample preparation product that allows NGS detection of multiple changes in more than 500 individual genes implicated in cancer. The method can also be rapidly customized to provide target enrichment kits for any gene sets defined by the researcher within a target size range that may include thousands of genes or just a few. The new product is the new release in the company’s driveto offer tools for targeted resequencing that provide basic and clinical researchers with a holistic view of the underlying molecular biology of disease. Typically, to analyze single nucleotide mutations and copy number changes in a sample, researchers have had to employ completely different analysis platforms. NuGEN’s new method allows simultaneous targeted analysis of both types of changes, from a single sample preparation, on a choice of Illumina NGS systems.

PreAnalytiX GmbH, NuGEN Technologies and RUCDR Infinite Biologics Partner to Develop Clinically Validated RNA-Seq Workflow for Whole Blood Samples

PreAnalytiX GmbH, NuGEN Technologies, Inc. and RUCDR Infinite Biologics (RUCDR), announced a joint project to validate an end-to-end workflow for the reproducible collection and processing of whole blood for RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) in clinical studies. The multi-site validation study involves three independent laboratories processing samples collected, stored and transported in the PAXgene Blood RNA System from PreAnalytiX to prepare strand-specific RNA-Seq libraries using NuGEN's Ovation Human Blood RNA-Seq System prior to NGS sequence analysis. RUCDR will oversee all sample collection, processing and data analysis for the purpose of validating the PreAnalytiX and NuGEN offerings in a combined workflow. Whole blood samples are used for a myriad of clinical genomics applications, due in part to the ease of collection as compared to other clinical sample types. However, there are challenges associated with preparation of human whole blood samples for analysis by RNA-Seq.
