This is a system that handles “automated, high throughput isolation of ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) DNA.” It’s used for optical genome mapping (OGM) and is now available for commercial purchase.
Bionano Genomics and Hamilton have been working together on the product after announcing a collaboration earlier this year. With today’s announcement, the two companies expect to start shipping deliveries in the first quarter of 2023.
Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and CEO of Bionano Genomics, said the following in a press release.
“The analysis of UHMW DNA can provide a more thorough way of detecting genomic aberrations that may be missed by traditional cytogenetic methods. Bionano and Hamilton look forward to seeing customers benefit from this solution in the coming months, which can reduce time-to-results, reduce hands-on-time and improve OGM performance by standardizing the process of UHMW DNA isolation.”
