Production services and technologies of single nucleotide
polymorphism (SNP) scoring and genetic diversity analysis. This newly
public company provides products, services, and technologies for single
nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) scoring and genetic diversity analyses.
It develops proprietary SNP analysis technologies (SNP-IT), it markets
SNPstream instruments and SNPware consumables that rapidly generate
highly accurate SNP information at a significantly lower cost than
conventional systems. The SNP-IT can be used by both small-scale laboratories
and large commercial facilities. This adaptability also enables Orchid
