In Country Sequencing Is The Future

|Includes: ILMN, Sequenom, Inc. (SQNM)

This podcast with Cliff Reid of Complete Genomics is very interesting. Includes discussion of why China FDA decided to step in to regulate NG sequencing (no CLIA regs). Also note the 15 minute mark where it's clear that sequencing will be done in-country in future. Clearly seems to indicate labs such as Life Codexx and Lab Cerba are going to be critical for NIPS. Lots of sequencing equipment to be sold in future. Illumina is current leader.

Disclosure: I am long SQNM.
