In addition, incorporating the Agilent Bravo Automated Liquid Handling platform into our service offerings will enable us to quickly process large volumes of samples for even more researchers and for a wide range of genomics applications. We are using these approaches to provide improved clinical genetic diagnostic testing services for patients with inherited eye disorders.”

We look forward to supporting them as they expand their services outside of the Harvard community.”
