Genetic analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms must be accurate, reliable and economical to be a viable part of human genetic research, drug discovery, and diagnostics. This study demonstrates the ability of the IntelliQube, a fully integrated liquid handling and real-time quantitative PCR instrument, to successfully multiplex SNP assays in a single well and decrease thermal cycling times without compromising data quality.
This white paper offers advice from two industry experts, Jill Northup from Medical College of Wisconsin, and Philip Cotter from ResearchDx, on setting up a clinical NGS laboratory. The paper covers the general principles of CLIA certification and their specific application to clinical NGS, as well as considerations on implementing informatics to support validated workflows.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of bisulfite-converted DNA to detect methylation status with per-base resolution is currently restricted by input requirements, requiring at least 50 ng of DNA. This Application Note shows how the unique chemistry of the Accel-NGSMethyl-Seq DNA Library Kit enables the construction of high complexity libraries for:
• Genome-wide methylation analysis from 5 ng of human cell-free DNA (cfDNA).
