12:35-1:05 (PacBio) Single molecule real-time sequencing on the Sequel II. With average read lengths of 35kb, >99% accuracy and >100GB per chip, all-inclusive variant detection from SNPs to large SV from one technology.

1:10-1:40 (Berkeley Lights) Advanced T cell analytics using digital cell biology at lightspeed. Berkeley lights’ platform enables the isolation and screening of individual cells byoptofluidics and a unique light-based technology.

1:45-2:15 (Celsee) The Genesis System enables analysis of molecular signatures from100’s-10^7 cells, enabling processing of two Slide Technologies for improved results in single-cell cytometry, single-cell proteogenomics, transcriptomics, rare-cell enumeration, and immune monitoring.

2:20-2:40 (Lexogen Inc.) To comprehensively view the full spectrum of RNA isoform diversity, having full-length cDNA (from 2-10kb) is a necessity for successful long-read sequencing.

2:45-3:15 (Nanostring) Learn about NanoString’s enzyme-free, multi-analyte gene quantification platform and hybridization chemistry that is 100% digital
