NuGEN Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. Announces Launch of Fusion Data Analysis Application, Enabling Simplified Fusion Detection and Discovery

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. announced the availability of the Ovation Fusion Detection application, providing a data analysis tool for the Ovation Fusion Target Enrichment System V2 that enables a complete sample-to-analysis workflow for fusion discovery and detection. The Ovation Fusion Panel Target Enrichment System V2 allows the comprehensive interrogation of multiple, specific genes for RNA sequencing, significantly simplifying fusion detection when compared with standard RNA sequencing approaches. Sequence data generated from this targeted enrichment technology can then be analyzed using the application on the BaseSpace cloud or as a local Linux installation. Structural chromosome rearrangements resulting in fusion genes are implicated in all types of human cancer, making the discovery and detection of these fusions valuable for both diagnostic and prognostic purposes. NuGEN’s products offer rapid and simple workflows for a broad range of next generation DNA and RNA sequencing applications, enabling highly sensitive detection of variants and expression levels from tissues, single cells and liquid biopsies. NuGEN’s products are used by thousands of scientists worldwide and have been cited in over 2,000 peer-reviewed publications.

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. Announces Management Changes

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. announced the appointment of Nitin Sood as Chief Executive Officer. He succeeds Elizabeth Hutt who recently left to pursue another opportunity. Mr. Sood comes to NuGEN from PerkinElmer, where he served as Vice President and General Manager of their life science instruments business spanning a portfolio of products in imaging, detection, tissue pathology, automation and NGS sample prep. Prior to his current role, Mr. Sood was the Chief Executive Officer of Boreal Genomics.

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.
