China-based MGI Tech Co., Ltd. (MGI), a global life science leader and innovator, has announced the grand opening of a new demonstration laboratory in Tokyo, Japan, enhancing Japanese customers' experience.
MGI has been expanding the operations of its sub-subsidiary, MGI Tech Japan by establishing a local office, setting up a warehouse and now building an Experience Centre at the new MGI Japan Demonstration Laboratory (Demo Lab) to serve local customers in accessing cutting-edge technologies and innovative new products.
At the Demo Lab, MGI staff will work closely with local researchers, technology providers, service partners, and genomic community partners to provide technical assessments, product trials, clinical workflow validation, new-tech proof-of-concept programs, in addition to other technical support, service, and troubleshooting.
Spanning over 200 square meters, the Demo Lab is equipped with MGI's latest product portfolio, including sequencers such as DNBSEQ-T7, DNBSEQ-G400, and DNBSEQ-G50, as well as automation systems including MGISP-NE32, MGISP-Smart8, MGISP-960, and MGISP-100 for DNA/RNA extraction, liquid handling, sequencing library preparation and so on. The suite of sequencing products supports a wide range of applications, such as WGS, WES, RNA-Seq, small RNA sequencing, single-cell sequencing, spatial genomics and more. The recent launch of PE300 sequencing capability has also enabled 16S metagenomics sequencing.
With the new Demo Lab, MGI looks forward to enabling the localization of these research collaborations, empowering customers, and partners, and further supporting the advancement of genomics in Japan.
