This collaboration brings together NanoString's proprietary sequencing chemistry and Lam's expertise in advanced systems engineering to enable nanoscale manufacturing, with the goal of building a clinical sequencer with the simplest workflow in the industry. The objectives of the collaboration are to complete the development of the Hyb & Seq single molecule sequencing chemistry, design and engineer a clinical sequencing instrument, develop clinical assay panels, and secure the necessary regulatory approvals. In addition, the companies intend to explore methods for coupling the sequencing chemistry with advanced semiconductor fabrication processes to optimize the performance of molecular profiling platforms.
Under the terms of the collaboration, Lam will provide up to
"We are excited to collaborate with
"Our vision is to create value from natural technology extensions, including nanoscale applications enablement, chemistry, plasma, fluidics, and advanced systems engineering," stated

About Hyb & Seq
Hyb & Seq is a novel single molecule sequencing technology being developed by
- A low intrinsic error rate and the ability to provide high consensus accuracy at low coverage by non-destructively sequencing the same native molecule multiple times
- Simultaneous capture and sequencing of DNA and RNA molecules in a single experiment
- Both short and long read capabilities, with demonstrated read lengths up to 33kb and no theoretical upper limit
- Total processing time from FFPE sample to start of sequencing of under 60 minutes, and hands-on time of less than 15 minutes
Hyb & Seq technology is currently for research use only and is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
