About Kailos Genetics
Kailos Genetics licensed a proprietary targeted enrichment technology from Washington University in St. Louis in 2010. This novel method for highlymultiplexed targeting of regions of the genome for deep sequencing is the most scalable on the market today, and is simple to implement. It is the first method that couples multiplex PCR with sample-specific DNA barcodes and next-generation sequencing to enable highly multiplex mutation discovery in candidate genes for multiple samples in parallel.
