Another interesting single-molecule technology is a company out of Providence (RI) called Nabsys. For several years I had heard the name involved in developing single-molecule sequencing technology, and this technology will start its initial product around genomic mapping, rather than sequencing. For background on genomic mapping and CNV analysis along […]
In contrast to BioNano Genomics, who is starting commercialization with early access customers now and full commercial launch in the Spring of 2013, OpGen launched the Argus™ Optical Mapping system in the summer of 2010.

A few weeks ago this paper appeared in Nature Biotechnology, “Genome mapping on nanochannel arrays for structural variation analysis and sequence assembly”. It was the first publication of a startup company in San Diego called BioNano Genomics.
