Gaithersburg, Maryland  --  Biotechnology instrument maker OpGen said that it has placed its first customer instrument for the optical mapping function.

The instrument is based on the company's technology that allows for rapid and accurate microbial genome identification and characterization via optical maps that can be created within hours.

“OpGen’s microbial genome analysis technology has been used by commercial, academic, and government organizations worldwide, on a service basis, since the company’s inception,” said Noel Doheny, OpGen’s Chief Executive Officer. “However, our strategic vision is to empower our customers to perform Optical Mapping for themselves by making the instrument and disposables readily available. Achieving this critical milestone of delivering an easy-to-use instrument to such an important customer is a significant accomplishment and proof that OpGen will achieve its longer term vision.”
