Since its establishment in 2014, RG has developed and offered long-read TCR/BCR repertoire analysis based on novel bioinformatics through a wide range of R&D activity from translational research to clinical trials. RG has a master patent granted in Japan, the United States, and Europe and was the first laboratory accredited against ISO/IEC 17025 in the field of TCR/BCR repertoire analysis.
