MicroGenDx said that it has acquired next-generation sequencing laboratory RTL Genomics. MicroGenDx, which provides sequencing- and PCR-based microbial testing for clinical diagnostic applications, said the deal would help expand its capabilities in nonclinical primary research. MicroGenDx said it has built a reference database of over 50,000 microbial species based on ITS and 16S sequencing and that the addition of RTL will help it create a similar database with whole-genome sequencing.
