Singular Genomics Partners with Twist Bioscience to Enable the Twist NGS Target Enrichment Solutions for the G4 Sequencing Platform

Jan 10, 2022

This partnership integrates G4’s accuracy, speed, flexibility and power with the Twist target enrichment solutions to empower fixed and custom targeted sequencing panels for customers.

LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMIC), a company leveraging novel next-generation sequencing (NGS) and multiomics technologies to empower researchers and clinicians, today announced a partnership with Twist Bioscience to validate its NGS Target Enrichment Solutions, high-quality target enrichment panels either curated or custom, with the G4 sequencing platform.

Twist NGS Target Enrichment Solutions provide an optimized workflow and easy customization of panel content. The combination of precise oligonucleotide synthesis and a scalable silicon-based manufacturing platform allows for the creation of high-performing probe panels.

“We are pleased to partner with Twist to make its Target Enrichment Solutions available to Singular Genomics customers. This collaboration underscores our commitment to providing a plug-and-play solution for our customers to seamlessly integrate the G4 into existing NGS workflows,” said Jorge Velarde, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy at Singular Genomics. “Targeted panels are key for NGS research and Twist’s custom capabilities will make it easy for customers to develop their own specific panels for the G4.”

“Twist is constantly striving to develop new innovations to help our customers succeed with their DNA ‘write:read:target’ cycle needs. Our partnership with Singular Genomics expands on this commitment to drive innovation in NGS applications, and further expands end-to-end workflow solutions for the NGS community,” said Emily M. Leproust, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Twist Bioscience. “We look forward to enabling Singular Genomics customers with the DNA tools they require to unlock new discoveries with the power of NGS.”
