iGenomX to Present Results from Recent Next-Generation Genotyping Studies at American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting

Sponsored by Businesswire

iGenomX International Genomics Corp., provider of the industry’s most scalable sequencing library tools, today announced its lineup of podium speakers at the upcoming American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting in Houston on Oct. 15-19, 2019. During the meeting, iGenomX will showcase unrivaled results from large-scale population genomic studies using its new Next-Generation Genotyping (NGG) approach and RIPTIDE high-throughput library preparation in booth #949.

iGenomX is now leading the next era in genotyping innovation with the launch of its NGG application. The complete workflow features the high-throughput RIPTIDE library preparation and proven analysis pipeline. Scientists are able to perform sequence-based genotyping across more than 37 million genetic markers for less than $80 per sample. Compared to today’s most comprehensive microarrays, scientists can now analyze more than 10 times the number of genetic variants for a fraction of the cost per sample. In addition, the NGG approach also avoids the ascertainment bias associated with fixed-content microarrays.
