As many of you know, we received our CLIA designation back in March of this year for our first CLIA test, the Clinical Exome Test. While this is not a catchy name with a clever acronym, it does a pretty good job of conveying exactly what the test is, I believe. What you may not know is that you do not get inspected by State regulators before you receive your CLIA and State certificates, you get audited afterwards. So, while highly confident in our data submission package for CLIA application, until you get audited, there is still a bit of doubt as to whether you are truly good enough. Similar to asking someone to marry you, when proposing, generally you are pretty confident in the response. But there is always that little bit of doubt…

Here at Edge we have designed our next generation sequencing lab from the ground up, with the goal of providing top quality, scalable services in a highly controlled environment. We utilize the latest technologies in order to maintain our position at the cutting edge of next generation sequencing. This virtual tour will take you through our various laboratories to give you a look inside our operation. In each room there are clickable icons that provide details about the various instruments and products that we use. Please take a minute to look around and see what we have built.

As a provider of next generation sequencing services, our laboratory and bioinformatics teams must keep abreast of a rapidly expanding range of new technologies. From the latest library prep protocols and capture kits, to emerging sequencing platforms and latest analysis software, we need to be able to provide technological expertise to our clients. As we continue to monitor the latest developments, we are always interested in hearing from other groups about their experiences with technology comparison and development.

It’s been a while since I have blogged on Ion Torrent data. There are several reasons for this.
First and foremost is that my head has been buried in The Archon Genomics XPrize Validation Protocol in which we were contracted to execute staring at the end of last year. The AGXP is an ambitious, incentivized prize competition that will award $10 million to the first team to rapidly, accurately, and economically sequence 100 whole human genomes to a level of accuracy never before achieved. The VP provides an opportunity to test and score current WGS technologies, assist the scientific community in establishing the reference genome(s) for this Competition and the means for analyzing the results of the Competition.
Second, it was with great anticipation and excitement that we received our Certificate of Compliance recently from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This means we have been deemed a CLIA lab and can begin to offer our Clinical Exome test under CLIA guidelines. No small feat.
But, here I am, again, knocking the dust off the blogging boots, and wading into another data set Ion Torrent has publically released.
