Watch Our Webinar to Expand Your Single-Cell Opportunities | Biological resolution at the level of individual cells is powering the next phase of precision health. Honeycomb is developing a new paradigm in single-cell technology — integrating a sample storage solution within single-cell profiling.
COVID-19 Testing of Vaccinated Individuals | While the new COVID-19 vaccines are successful at preventing the COVID-19 syndrome, it is still unknown if the vaccines prevent people from getting infected and passing on the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Verifying the Presence of the SARS-CoV-2 in Positive RT-PCR Samples | The PerkinElmer® New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection kit has been identified as having the highest sensitivity of the commercially available COVID-19 diagnostic kits. The purpose of this study is to use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) of samples with a range of Ct values to verify the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 genome.
Profound Expertise in Automated DNA and RNA Workflows | Since 1997, PerkinElmer chemagen develops and produces reliable chemagic™ instruments and kits for automated high-throughput nucleic acid purification from human sample materials.
Examining the Workflow of a Cutting-edge COVID-19 Diagnostic Lab | In early 2020, the Netherlands identified its first COVID-19 cases. Facilitating test capacity for all symptomatic individuals resulted in extensive pressure on diagnostics labs making it challenging for non- symptomatic individuals such as travelers, teachers and professional athletes to get tested.
WILL YOUR RT-PCR ASSAY IDENTIFY THE NEW SARS-COV-2 VARIANTS? Diagnosing COVID-19 B.1.1.7 and B.1.351 Lineages The UK SARS-CoV-2 variant under investigation (VUI) called VUI 202012/01 (B.1.1.7 lineage) has multiple mutations in the spike glycoprotein’s gene S. Five are amino acid replacements (D614G, A222V, N439K, Y453F and N501Y), and one deletion (del) . The South African variant called 501.V2 [...]
SARS-CoV-2 Diagnostics. Screening. Surveillance. | SARS-CoV-2 testing is a term used for different applications including diagnostics, screening, and surveillance. This post describes the differences between them.
How to Load Barcode Indexes in Illumina® Experiment Manager | The Illumina® Experiment Manager (IEM) is an app used to create valid sample sheets for some Illumina® sequencers. Although sample sheets can be generated manually, this tool minimize the risk of errors.
