  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MGI, established in 2016 as a subsidiary of global genomics leader BGI Group, announced it has reached a new milestone of 1,000 MGI sequencers installed in 16 countries. MGI Chief Operating Officer Dr. Hui Jiang also announced the availability of MGI's early access program for its newest ultra-high-throughput genetic sequencer, MGISEQ-T7, during a presentation at China Focus@JPM Week on the eve of the 37th annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.

The MGISEQ-T7 vastly improves speed, throughput and flexibility of DNA sequencing by enabling simultaneous but independent operation of up to four flow cells in a single run. The innovative quad-flowcell platform allows multiple flow cells with different read lengths and applications to be processed separately at any time. Sequencing of PE150 takes less than 24 hours at full load to complete. The MGI proprietary technologies, including DNBseqâ„¢  used in T7, deliver exceptionally high accuracy and improve efficiency through upgrades to the flowcell, fluidics, and biochemical and optical system. The platform can produce up to 6Tb of daily data, equivalent to up to 60 whole human genomes in a single day.

Ultra-high-throughput Genetic Sequencer MGISEQ-T7

MGI's technology improves the speed, efficiency and affordability of large population health projects. In the past, a 100,000-population-genome program would take four to six years to complete, but now using six MGISEQ-T7 sequencers such projects could be completed in just one year, at much lower cost.

The early access program supports collaboration on the development of genetic technologies and applications. It allows customization of instruments and reagents and innovative financial models. MGI is planning to expand this program internationally over the coming year. The MGI platform is gaining support around the world, with more than 135 publications using MGI sequencers and over 20 petabytes of data generated.

Proprietary Sequencing Technology MGISEQ/BGISEQ's Progress

Besides its sequencer product portfolio, MGI has developed a product portfolio of automated sample preparation workstations to meet the needs of ultra-high-throughput genomic sequencing. Dr. Jiang also introduced the MGISP workstations series of products for sample preparation, MegaBOLT series of products for accelerating bioinformatics analysis, and ZLIMS software system for lab management with NGS sequencing process.

At the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, MGI also announced a global partnership with Paragon Genomics, a leader in amplicon-based target enrichment and library preparation solutions for next-generation sequencing (NGS) assays. MGI will distribute Paragon Genomics' CleanPlex ® NGS  Panels for use with MGI's sequencing platforms in all territories worldwide except the U.S., and Paragon Genomics will distribute MGI's automated sample preparation workstation systems in the U.S. and Canada.
