Penzberg, Germany and Madison, WI, USA, June 21, 2013 / B3C newswire / - Roche today announced the global launch of the NimbleDesign tool, an online software that enables customers to easily design optimized SeqCap EZ Choice Libraries in as little as one hour. The software’s industry-leading design algorithm offers an empirically optimized probe database allowing customers to obtain and review designs in an automated setting before making the purchase decision. “NimbleDesign is based on years of target enrichment design experience from our bioinformatics experts,” said Thomas Schinecker, President of Roche Sequencing Solutions. “Following the very positive feedback we received from pilot users in selected regions we are excited to offer this software tool globally now. It marks another step in our ongoing efforts to improve the customer convenience of our target enrichment portfolio.”

The NimbleDesign tool enables customers to take full advantage of Roche’s superior SeqCap EZ library technology, delivering more efficient discovery of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and better uniform coverage than many other commercially available technologies. In addition, the easy-to-use interface offers the opportunity to develop multiple designs simultaneously with very quick turnaround time. Adding to the already improved customer convenience with the launch of SeqCap EZ Reagents earlier this year, the NimbleDesign tool further streamlines the design workflow and ordering process.
