Agilent names Fasteris as first CSP of its SureSelect system

3rd December 2009

Agilent has revealed that Fasteris has become the first European-certified service provider (CSP) for its SureSelect Target Enrichment System for next-generation sequencing.

Fasteris achieved CSP status after demonstrating a high level of proficiency using the SureSelect system alongside the Illumina Genome Analyzer, Agilent revealed.

It added that SureSelect – which was introduced in February 2009 – has been shown to increase the speed and cost-efficiency of next-generation sequencing workflows used in life science research.

Additionally, it enables experiments to focus on genomic regions of interest, rather than sequencing one genome in its entirety.

Fred Ernani, Agilent’s senior product manager for emerging genomics applications, stated: “Fasteris is a pioneer in next-generation sequencing and we’re delighted that they’ll be combining the efficiencies of SureSelect with their expertise on the Illumina Genome Analyzer.”

Last month, Agilent announced improvements to the hardware that accompanies its Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscope portfolio, which now allows it to yield results in less than two seconds.
