HSD congratulates BioNano Genomics for its commercial rollout of the breakthrough Irys™ System, an intuitively designed genome mapping system that empowers genomics researchers with a new way of analyzing genomic DNA. Irys™ makes it possible to routinely and accurately detect genomic structural variation and to finish genome assemblies.  HSD and Sparton Medical Systems collaborated on the design and engineering of the instrument and disposable cartridge.  To learn more about this amazing technology, see the video here.
