Agilent Technologies acquires Laboratory901 Agilent Systems Inc.

With the help of Lab901’s exceptional technology and talented group, Agilent is now able to address customer needs over the entire period of electrophoresis life technology applications – from semi-automated to 96-well-plate compatible workflows, said Patrick Kaltenbach, vice president of Agilent’s Liquid Phase Separations business. Alongside our existing BioAnalyzer platform and the Agilent G7100 Electrophoresis System, the Laboratory901 ScreenTape system provides a very versatile, scalable and automated throughput gel electrophoresis solution for a wide range of applications. Lab901’s ScreenTape system is an easy and practical benchtop automated system for gel electrophoresis. Clients simply load their samples and the ScreenTape consumable in to the compact TapeStation instrument and within as little as one minute per sample, fully analyzed results for protein, RNA and DNA samples are displayed.Here we describe this approach in a medical setting. We utilized massively parallel paired-end sequencing of customized large-place jumping libraries to define the precise consequences of a well balanced de novo translocation in DNA extracted from amniotic-fluid cells following the recognition of multiple fetal anomalies. Case Report A pregnant 37-year-old female with a brief history of infertility and spontaneous abortion no previous full-term pregnancy presented after ultrasonography performed at 18.eight weeks of gestation revealed fetal abnormalities, including a hypoplastic right ventricle and tricuspid atresia .
