Applauding the WHO for stepping up the fight against TB.
Today the World Health Organization issued new guidelines on latent TB screening. They recommend to include testing also in low-income countries, where the burden of TB is the highest, and expand access to testing for new groups of people. The move will help countries around the world catalyze TB prevention and contribute to ending the TB epidemic.
Next-generation sequencing is a breakthrough technology 💪
Learn more about the new process that renders decoding genetic information easier, faster, and less expensive than conventional methods in this article by Dr. Yassmine Akkari, Legacy Laboratory Services in Portland, Oregon.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Tuberculosis is one of the oldest infectious diseases – and still one of the deadliest. Scarce funding threatens to hamper its eradication and has given rise to the threat of multi- resistant strains that demands new approaches in fighting the disease.
Cancer is one of the most devastating diseases in the world.
In the past, traditional #cancer genetics focused on single mutations in tumors. But thanks to various methods described as next-generation sequencing (NGS) that allow the massive parallel analysis of genetic material, today researchers can use gene panels testing multiple markers at once. #worldcancerday #WecanIcan
Being committed to making improvements in life possible every day, our global team supports the world’s fight against cancer. #WecanIcan
Specializing in Genetics and Genomic Sciences, one of Dr. Martignetti’s missions is to unravel the mysteries of ribonucleic acid (RNA), currently one of the most exciting areas of clinical research. His insights bring the possibility of transforming the diagnosis, treatment, and survival of life-threatening conditions, including several cancers. #worldcancerday #WecanIcan
With #worldcancerday being around the corner, we wanted to start showing our colleagues’ support in the world´s fight against cancer. Our teams around the globe are committed to making improvements in life possible, working every day on delivering oncology solutions for our customers that span from basic research to clinical routine. #WecanIcan
The King's College London just had a royal visitor👑 - we are delighted to see the Duchess discussing #perinatal research work and the challenges surrounding maternal mental health at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King's.
For 4000 years, Khnum-Nakht and Nakht-Ankh were, as the text on their coffins suggested, mummies from the same mother.
A new genetic analysis shows that, unlike the two mummies, the story of their kinship is not preserved for all eternity.
We’re glad to announce a collaboration with Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS). GIS, an integral part of A*STAR, is the national flagship program for genomics sciences in Singapore. GIS, in addition to providing genomic infrastructure for Singapore, seeks to unite scientists in Singapore through collaborative projects in both academic and commercial sectors.
Through this collaboration, QIAGEN and GIS aim to develop clinical applications in next-generation sequencing (#NGS) platforms, focusing on liquid biopsy and microbial research. Together, let’s make improvements in life possible!
