We would like to thank Genomeweb for their recent articles regarding the announcement of our CLIA status. If you missed the articles from Genomeweb you can view them here: Clinical Exome Sequencing and EdgeBio Recieves CLIA Certification
A few weeks ago we received our CLIA certification for next generation sequencing and will offer clinical exome sequencing for large labs and hospitals that can do their own in-house analysis. We will supply aligned sequencing data and leave the interpretation to the customers themselves.

It was with great anticipation and excitement that we received our Certificate of Compliance yesterday from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This, paired with our compliance letter from the State of Maryland, means we have been deemed a CLIA lab and can begin to offer our Clinical Exome test under CLIA guidelines. It’s been quite a journey to get here and everyone is quite excited to receive this designation and achieve this milestone.

By now you have heard that Roche has submitted a hostile takeover bid for Illumina to the tune of over $5 billion USD. If you have not you can read about the particulars here.
Early speculation has it that this will turbocharge the effort to have DNA sequencing used routinely in the clinic given Roche’s distribution channels and partners in diagnostics. My question is, "Are the clinics, and the clinicians, ready for this very powerful tool to arrive on their doorstep?" Clearly it would take at least a year for Roche to fully digest the acquisition but they already have been making inroads via their 454 instrument. Having a platform like the MiSeq would only hasten their ability to deliver a truly robust system to the diagnostic marketplace.

So much for a slow journey, huh? I leave the office for a day and I miss the announcement of the improvements to Illumina’s two DNA sequencing instruments, the HiSeq and the MiSeq. In case you missed it, you can learn more here. Now it seems we have a choice of platform, should we want our whole genomes in one day, either the HiSeq® 2500 or the ion torrent Proton machine, which we covered in our previous blog post.
The cool thing about the HiSeq 2500 is that it will have dual running modes. Want a genome in a day? Switch to a mode that will deliver 120 Gb of data in 27 hours, roughly equivalent to a human whole genome at 40X coverage. Need more data? Switch to a second mode and generate 600 Gb of data over approximately 11 days.

GenoLogics today announced that EdgeBio, a leading sequencing services provider, has deployed the GenoLogics Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), bringing an unprecedented level of flexibility and adaptability to its next-generation sequencing (NGS) core laboratory. The GenoLogics LIMS replaces EdgeBio’s existing commercial LIMS software.
