TATAA Biocenter Expands Its Next-Generation Sequencing Offerings with LOOP Genomics technology for long-read Illumina sequencing

Göteborg, Sweden – TATAA Biocenter, Europe´s leading provider of genomic services, and LOOP Genomics, inventor of technology for long reads on Illumina sequencer, announce collaboration in Europe, where TATAA will be offering long read Illumina sequencing using LOOP Genomics’s proprietary technology.

“LOOP Genomics technology is a major break-through. It takes 16S sequencing to a new level, and opens up for studies of splice variants, discrimination between cis and trans elements and much more, while taking advantage of the high sequencing accuracy and relative low price of the Illumina sequencers.” says Mikael Kubista, CEO and founder of TATAA Biocenter.

Tony Lialin, Chief Commercial Officer of Loop Genomics stated, “Loop Genomics is thrilled to partner with TATAA Biocenter on extending TATAA’s current NGS offerings. Through TATAAs extensive network and popular training courses, we will have excellent reach making our powerful technology available to the European research community.”
