We’re heading to Phoenix for ACMG 2017

ACMG 2017 is just around the corner! We are halfway through March already and it’s just about time to head off to sunny and warm Phoenix, Arizona. While the temps have been mostly mild for the last few weeks in Montana, I bet those of you in the northeast are looking forward to your time in Phoenix!

You will find us in booth #414 where we will have an awesome line-up of demos. One of the highlights of our demos this year is our CNV capabilities in VarSeq. You may recall that in our webcast last week, we announced that we took our CNV capabilities to the next level. Along with the ability to call CNVs at the single-exon level in NGS gene panels, VS-CNV can now be used to call large loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and CNV events at the exome level. The combination of these capabilities allows your lab to get additional value out of NGS data.

We will also showcase VarSeq’s ability handle variant analysis and interpretation including annotation, filtering and clinical reporting across several testing scenarios. VSWarehouse will also take the stage to show how a lab’s clinical data can be captured, organized and leveraged to gain further insights.

Of course, our famous Golden Helix t-shirts will be on the scene, and you can pick one up for yourself after any of our scheduled demos. Here is the official schedule:
