04-Nov-2009 - United Kingdom

GATC Biotech announced that it will open a sequencing laboratory in London to provide scientists in UK and Ireland with single sample sequencing services. The GATC London Laboratory will be situated in the London BioScience Innovation Centre (LBIC) and will start operations on January 4, 2010.

Through the GATC London Laboratory, customers benefit from a free courier delivery service of less than 24 hours. In addition, in many cities throughout the UK and Ireland GATC offers a free sample collection service in the evening with overnight shipment directly to the GATC London Laboratory.

GATC Biotech plans to install a unique “5-to-9” overnight sequencing service, called NightXpress, which will reduce delivery times to just 16 hours from sample collection. From Monday to Friday, DNA samples will be collected for free from 5 pm at defined GATC Sample Collection Points and by 9 am the next morning, including Saturdays, DNA sequencing results will be ready for download. NightXpress will start operations on February 15, 2010, initially with customers in London and surrounding areas.
