TUCSON, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Today HTG Molecular Diagnostics announced the availability of HTG EdgeSeq miRNA Whole Transcriptome Assay for measuring the expression of 2,275 human microRNAs (miRNAs) described in the miRBase v20 database. The assay measures expression from very small, sometimes difficult sample types such as formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues and plasma. Automated on the HTG Edge System, HTG Edge miRNA Whole Transcriptome Assay couples HTG's proprietary nuclease protection chemistry with next-generation-sequencing (NGS).
"The assay is ideal for the characterization of miRNA expression patterns from a wide variety of sample types, including FFPE, blood, plasma and serum, PAXgene and cell lines. Sample and library preparation are automated on our HTG Edge System for faster, easier quantification for high-fidelity miRNA expression profiling," stated Debrah Thompson, HTG's Director of Research. "The solution is ideal for laboratories seeking to further leverage capacity of their existing NGS in a new way, and because we've simplified the bioinformatics back-end, laboratories can add this capability very quickly," Dr. Thompson added.
"With HTG EdgeSeq we've combined the high-specificity of our nuclease protection chemistry with the broad dynamic range and exquisite sensitivity of next-generation-sequencing, making this the next big thing in digital gene expression. Even with challenging sample types such as FFPE, HTG EdgeSeq miRNA Whole Transcriptome Assay eliminates the need to extract RNA with our lysis-only, extraction-free chemistry," commented TJ Johnson, HTG Molecular Chief Executive Officer. "Sample and library prep is fully automated on the HTG Edge System, simplifying workflow, reducing hands-on-time, and resulting in faster turnaround times," Mr. Johnson added.
Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, HTG Molecular Diagnostics' mission is to provide simple, cost effective solutions for accurate RNA testing. In 2013 the company commercialized its Edge instrument platform and a portfolio of mRNA RNA assays that leverage HTG's proprietary nuclease protection chemistry. HTG Edge System capabilities have been expanded to fully automate sample and targeted library preparation for next-generation sequencing. Additional information is available at www.htgmolecular.com.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
