Default Lightspeed Genomics?


I'm currently preparing an overview of next and next-nextgen sequencing systems for Cambridge Healthtech's Insight Pharma Reports, and I'm interested to know if there's any speculation or knowledge about the technology under development by Lightspeed Genomics (Sunnyvale, CA).

LightSpeed Genomics to Develop High-Speed DNA Sequencer
LightSpeed Genomics, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., is developing a high-speed DNA sequencing platform that “will allow human genome sequencing to be performed more quickly and less expensively than ever before,” according to the company’s website.

LightSpeed founder and CEO Josh Ryu told In Sequence this week that the company is currently in stealth mode and not yet ready to talk about its plans. Ryu, who holds a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is a former Affymetrix staff scientist. Stanley Hong, a former colleague of Ryu from MIT, is a co-founder and chief technology officer of the company.

According to a press release from the Kauffman Foundation last week, LightSpeed was “spun out of a research program” at MIT. Bo Fishback, another company co-founder, recently became vice president of entrepreneurship at the Kauffman Foundation (see Paired Ends in this issue).

Formerly called Solametrix, LightSpeed Genomics received an undisclosed amount of funding from Rockhill Partners and other angel investors in March 2007.
