Omixon Celebrates a Successful EFI 2014

Omixon took a team of 8 to the 28th EFI (European Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics) Conference, held in Stockholm.  Omixon’s “A Team” of defenders (science nerds), midfielders (marketing bods) and strikers (sales weenies) were superbly captained by the indefatigable Craig Funnell (Director of Sales and Marketing), and brought super-sub Attila Berces (Founder and Chairman) and water bottle carrier Tim Hague (CEO) along for the ride.

There were over 1200 attendees altogether from all over the world, and much of the discussion centred around HLA Typing using NGS data.  There was a huge amount of interest in the recent collaboration announced between Omixon and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and the team at the Omixon booth were rushed off their feet dealing with enquiries about the impending Illumina-based, combination Assay and Software HLA product and demonstrating the Omixon HLA Typing software.  There was also keen interest in a poster describing elements of the Omixon HLA algorithms.

CEO Tim Hague commented afterwards: “We were humbled and gratified by such a positive response to our collaboration with CHOP. We’re very excited about the possibilities for our new HLA kit product range. We also drank too much wine at the One Lambda party.”
