Looking forward to seeing you there,


Feels great to me…. With all the leading sequencing technologies from ABI to GSFLX+, HiSeq 2000 and at least PacBio RS including bioinfo inhouse, we’re “fully furnished” with the latest technologies!

We’re really happy to provide PacBio RS officially now. Production has started, lots of projects are already scheduled.

Feel free to contact us. Our Next Gen Sequencing specialists will gladly discuss individual project design including multiple platform approaches with you!


PacBio workshop for the GATC team

 17:59 Uhr
|   by Elke Decker

Tough studying time on a hot summer afternoon: Ralph and Tobi from Pacific Biosciences trained the global sales team in all technical, scientific and sales aspects of the SMRT technology while doing several test runs on the instrument. They gave the team a very deep insight into the PacBio and revealed quite some valuable tips and hints. Had they been secrets so far?


Thanks for the trust, coaches!




Our PacBio RS has passed the acceptance tests. As promised by Terry Pizzie from Pacific Biosciences, the installation of our Single Molecule Sequencer has been completed successfully within 4 weeks after delivery! We have integrated the PacBio RS into the sequencing pipeline of GATC’s labs in Constance. It is now officially joining all leading sequencing technology platforms! Yeah!


Just got the detailed results from my magic PacBio run: 



Per SMRTcell:

Movie time = 30 minutes

Mean Mapped Read Length = 1346 bp

Accuracy = 86%

Mapped yield = 62.2 Mb

Well in excess of our specification. I’m not sure if this is because Kerstin started the run or not . . . .!

Regards, Toby



Seems I need to change my job and go back to the lab....



First results of the run

 10:51 Uhr

Toby from Pacific Biosciences just sent me an email:


Hi Kerstin, whatever you did to the instrument last night broke it! The lambda runs gave 1500bp mean readlength – for a 30 minute movie! Unglaublich!! You must have a magic touch.
