Thermo Fisher Scientific seeks innovative approaches for nucleic acid library preparation. The goal is to facilitate next-generation (high-throughput) sequencing.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is seeking partners and opportunities to develop and commercialize nucleic acid library preparation for next-generation sequencing (NGS.) The improvements we seek may relate to a specific type of NGS library preparation or more generally applicable. Ideally, the improvement(s) would surpass performance of existing, market-leading methods from commercial suppliers and include:
The successful technology improvement should meet at least several of the performance metrics as demonstrated by performance benchmarking data against currently available kits from
market-leading companies. The key metrics include:
The applications for NGS are very broad and therefore it is recognized that library preparation approaches may vary substantially from current techniques depending on the application.
Approaches that are novel with strong intellectual property (IP) protection will receive preferential consideration.
