MGI is committed to building core tools and technology to lead life science through intelligent innovation. MGI focuses on R&D, production and sales of DNA sequencing instruments, reagents, and related products to support life science research, agriculture, precision medicine and healthcare.
Founded in 2016, MGI has over 1000 employees, nearly half of whom are R&D personnel. MGI operates in 39 countries and regions and has established multiple research and production bases globally. Providing real-time, comprehensive, life-long solutions, its vision is to enable effective and affordable healthcare solutions for all.
MGI is a leading producer of clinical high-throughput gene sequencers, and its multi-omics platforms include genetic sequencing, mass spectrometry, medical imaging, and laboratory automation.
MGI's DNA sequencing instruments utilize the state-of-the-art core technology called DNBSEQTM. DNBs (DNA nanoballs) are pumped with by the fluidics system and loaded onto a Patterned Array chip. Sequencing primer is then added and hybridized to the adaptor region of the DNB. The sequencing reaction starts by pumping sequencing reagents containing fluorescently labeled dNTP probes and DNA polymerase. Images are taken after the fluorescently labeled probes on the DNB are excited with lasers. The images are then converted into a digital signal using MGI's propriety software. This information is then used to determine the DNA sequence of the sample.
All sequencing technologies relating to DNBs are part of DNBSEQTM. It includes, DNA single strand circularization and DNB preparation technology, Patterned Arrays, DNB loading, cPAS (combinatorial Probe Anchor Synthesis), Pair-End Sequencing technology on DNBs, fluidics and imaging systems, and base calling algorithms, etc. cPAS technology has been widely used on various sequencing platforms including BGISEQ-50, BGISEQ-500, DNBSEQ-G50, DNBSEQ-G400, DNBSEQ-T7, etc.
Besides, MGI provides automation systems, ultrasonic systems as well as various of applications to all.
