Agilent Technologies chooses NCGR as certified SureSelect provider

5th January 2012

Agilent Technologies has selected the US National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) as the latest provider of SureSelect target enrichment services for next-generation sequencing.

NCGR will be providing Agilent exome and custom target-enrichment services, along with sequencing and analysis for a range of genomics studies, having achieved certified provider status.

SureSelect, which improves the speed and efficiency of sequencing by allowing researchers to focus on areas of interest instead of a full genome, has already been used extensively by NCGR for various projects.

The facility was granted certification following a rigorous assessment of its on-site facilities and expertise, with staff also participating in comprehensive on-site training.

Dr Fred Ernani, Agilent's marketing director for the SureSelect platform, said: "NCGR has a very strong record of accomplishment in the sequencing community and we're pleased that SureSelect is a key part of its sequencing services."

Last month, the company expanded its range of life science offerings through the acquisitions of Halo Genomics and BioSystem Development.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801256373-ADNFCR
