BAGNEUX, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Genomic Vision (Paris:GV) (FR0011799907 – GV), a company specialized in the development of diagnostic solutions for the early detection of cancers and serious genetic diseases and tools for life sciences research today announced the adoption of its molecular combing technology with the use of the FiberVision® platform by the Cologne Center for Genomics (CCG) to further develop the medical biology research and accelerate the discovery of new biomarkers.
The CCG’s core facility, one of the major European centers for genetic analysis renowned for adopting the most innovative medical technologies, has tested for a few months the FiberVision® platform. At the end of this period, the CCG has just confirmed the implementation of molecular combing as the tool to improve its research capacity in DNA structural variations in the hereditary diseases and cancers or in the identification of complex genetic disorders.
Thanks to a direct visualization of the long strands of DNA, the molecular combing technology, on which the platform FiberVision® is based, provides a useful addition to the existing sequencing technologies in the search for new genetic biomarkers.
Prof. Dr. Peter Nürnberg, principal investigator of the Cologne Center for Genomics, stated: “We are excited to have this complementary new technology in our Core Facility. We have already obtained promising results on the Complement Factor H for the early diagnosis of Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS), allowing to find undetected genomic deletions in symptomatic patients. Its use will be extended to more pathologies and to serve both our research and clinical departments.”
David Del Bourgo, Director of Marketing & Sales of Genomic Vision, concluded: “The adoption of our FiberVision® platform by a leading player in genetic analysis, such as the CCG, is a real recognition of our technology. The CCG and the teams of Prof. Nürnberg are at the forefront in the use of new generation sequencing technologies and have quickly integrated the opportunities provided by molecular combing. By allowing an analysis of the DNA structural variations without ambiguity, our platform offers a real asset to the CCG teams in the fundamental understanding of specific genetic pathologies and in the care of their undiagnosed patients.”
