Universal Sequencing Partnership

TATAA Biocenter partners with Universal Sequencing

TATAA Biocenter has partnered with Universal Sequencing Technology Corporation (UST) to offer full-service solutions for Long Read Sequencing Applications using UST TELL-Seq Linked Read technology.

TATAA Biocenter was founded in 2001 and is a leading provider of molecular services to the Advanced Therapies and Medical products (ATMP) industries in Europe and to the Cell and Gene Therapy industry in the United States.

UST’s TELL-Seq technology, a transposase-based patent-pending linked-read library technology, enables short read 2nd generation NGS platforms, such as Illumina sequencers, to produce super long-range sequencing results (averaging linked-read molecule length greater than 40kb, up to and exceeding 200kb). A sequencing-ready library can be prepared in a PCR tube in ~3 hours with a simple workflow and basic lab equipment, which is simple, fast, and cost-effective. A unique feature of UST TELL-Seq is that it only requires ultra-low DNA input, 3-5ng for the human genome and 0.1-0.5ng for microbial genomes and target sequencing panels.

Dr. Aaron U. Levy, GM & Chief Commercial Officer of UST, who recently visited the TATAA Biocenter facility in Gothenburg, stated that he was impressed with the laboratory’s setup, corporate culture, professionalism, and up-to-code superb sequencing services. Levy added that “TELL-Seq library technology is compatible with the range of Illumina sequencing platforms from benchtop like MiniSeq™ up to high-throughput NovaSeq™ 6000. The collaboration between UST and TATAA, based on the growing need for long-read results with very accurate short-read Illumina sequencers is speeding up the adoption of UST’s super long-range TELL-Seq NGS library products among Illumina users in the US and all over the world.”

With UST TELL-Seq library preparation kits and an Illumina sequencer, one can do de novo sequencing of microbial, animal, plant, and insect genomes, metagenomics, human genome phasing, and structural variation detection.
