Rubicon Genomics, Inc Announces Distribution Agreement with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences for its ThruPLEX Plasma-Seq Kits

Rubicon Genomics, Inc. announced a new agreement with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences for distribution of its ThruPLEX Plasmaseq kits for research applications. ThruPLEX Plasmaseq prepares DNA nextgeneration sequencing (NGS) libraries for the analysis of cellfree DNA circulating in plasma. The nonexclusive agreement covers the U.S. and Canada. It follows an announcement last fall that the ThruPLEX Plasmaseq kit has been automated for use with Beckman Coulter's Biomek FXP Automated Workstation, a leading automated liquid handling solution for laboratories worldwide. ThruPLEX Plasmaseq kits enable liquid biopsies for research applications in cancer and other conditions by producing highly reproducible libraries for Illumina instruments from small amounts of cellfree DNA in plasma (from less than 1 ng up to 30 ng of cell free DNA.) Its optimized repair and ligation chemistries and a modified protocol provide high library diversity at low input amounts with broad and consistent GC coverage. ThruPLEX Plasmaseq libraries are suitable for whole genome, whole exome and targeted gene sequencing. The performance of the ThruPLEX Plasmaseq kit has been validated by researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and Cancer Research UK (CRUK) in Cambridge, UK.
