We are delighted to extend the service to our Oxford customers.”

He added, “The Overnight Service is already having a very positive impact on our business, with a significant increase in sequencing volumes since its launch in June 2011. We look forward to broadening the reach of this service in due course, enabling more customers to access the benefits of overnight sequencing, and we will be providing an update on this part of our business at the Q3 results next month.”
