Webinar: Gene Clusters and Speciation – Unraveling Complex Plant Genomes

SEPTEMBER 7, 2021 15:30 CEST

Join Austin Garner from Harvard University and Robert Heal from the Sainsbury Laboratory to hear how they gain high-resolution insights into complex plant genomes. Austin studies the genetic underpinnings of speciation, using Samplix's Xdrop to sequence relevant long stretches of the Phlox drummondii 6-gigabase genome. Robert investigates genes that boost plant resistance to pathogens, using Xdrop to assemble complex gene clusters with the goal of cloning novel resistance genes to develop blight-resistant potato varieties.

Samplix sponsored talk at ESHG 2021

Xdrop: Targeted enrichment to overcome challenges in sequencing large and complex plant genomes

Samplix discusses Xdrop at Plant Biology Europe 2021

JUNE 29, 2021 15:00 CEST
Peter Mouritzen, VP Application and Market Development, gave a great talk on the value that target enrichment with Xdrop can bring to overcoming the challenges of long- and short-read sequences of plant genomes. He shared data and insights from some of our collaborations elucidating the complex genomic landscape of plants. If you registered for PBE2021, you can still watch a recording of his talk over the course of the next month. Otherwise, learn more here and stay tuned! We will soon have the talk on our website.

Samplix Launches Xdrop

02 September 2019. Today, Samplix is happy to announce the commercial launch of our Xdrop instrument for the targeted enrichment of long genomic regions from as little as 1 ng of DNA.

Scientists in the genomics field can now routinely capture up to 100 kb long genomic regions, based upon very limited target sequence information (100-200 bp of sequence). Using Xdrop technology together with long- or short-read sequencers makes it possible to sequence into regions that were previously inaccessible.

The types of genomic regions that are now unlocked by the Xdrop technology include:

Difficult to sequence regions Repetitive regions Integration sites from gene editing

machine illutration

Samplix wins €1.9 million in Horizon 2020 SME program

Samplix wins €1.9 million in prestigious Horizon 2020 – SME Instrument program 

January 2019. Samplix is pleased to announce that the company has been selected by the European Commission among the winners of the prestigious Horizon 2020 – SME Instrument program, obtaining €1.9 million to mature its proprietary Xdrop technology. The selection process was highly competitive with more than 1.800 applicants and a success rate of only about 3%.

Samplix’ proprietary Xdrop technology comprises novel microfluidics, chemistry and bioinformatics in a simple work process that allows scientists and clinicians to partition millions of single molecules in droplets, thereby enabling both targeted enrichment and high-quality amplification of single molecules for sequencing analysis.

 The Xdrop technology is currently in beta test at leading research institutions world-wide.

 “We are excited to receive recognition and support by the European Commission for completion of our product development towards commercial launch of the Xdrop solution later this year” said CEO Lars Kongsbak.
