Stratos Genomics Receives Fundamental Patent on Sequencing by Expansion™ Technology

Seattle, Wash. – May 25, 2011 – Stratos Genomics Inc today announced it has been granted US Patent 7,939,259 titled “High Throughput Nucleic Acid Sequencing by Expansion.” Sequencing by Expansion™ (SBX™) is a method for converting DNA into a more easily-read polymer called an Xpandomer™. Xpandomers encode DNA base sequence information with high signal-to-noise reporters optimally positioned along the polymer chain. SBX is a solution to the intrinsic problem of sequencing native DNA at high-speed and low cost.
