Tour EdgeBio Labs

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.


Ion Decision Tree & Price Calculator Project Design

One of the most important factors in determining the ultimate success of a next generation sequencing project is the initial project design.  There are many things to consider when designing a project based on project goals, sample type, budget, timeframe etc.  At EdgeBio we spend a great deal of time up front with our clients discussing and planning the best approach to meet their specific needs.  For many clients this will be their first foray into the world of next generation sequencing and as the range of options continues to expand at a rapid pace it can be a daunting task in figuring

While You Were Waiting...The $1,000 Exome.

It’s been quite some time since my last blog post. We’ve been rather busy over the summer, so let me fill you in on what has happened. At Edge, we have been diligently working on our CLIA certification and offering, with our latest test offering a CLIA exome on our Illumina HiSeq2000 platform using either the Agilent SureSelect capture or Roche Nimblegen capture. Over the coming weeks the staff at Edge will be releasing a series of blog posts relating to targeted resequencing methodologies. They will relate specifically to Project Design, Research & Clinical applications, “Tools of the Trade”, Data Delivery and then a summary “Cheat Sheet”. They will be information heavy, with lots of tables and data to digest, so try not to read them right after a large meal.
