Expanded OUS node open after renovation!
Renovation of the OUS node is complete, and normal services have resumed.
All four HiSeq X machines are now operational! - output capacity at OUS now exceeds 1.5 Tb per day...
Pre and post-PCR labs were expanded, and installation of new sample-prep automation is underway. However, the biggest change is the installation of a powerful air-conditioning system in our enlarged machine room.Two 20 kW systems (one main system, and an independent backup powered from a reserve generator) should ensure stable temperatures in the machine room, improving machine reliabiliy and data quality.
