Qiagen Clinical Insights

Qiagen has launched Qiagen Clinical Insights in Europe, with the inclusion of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) guidelines and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved oncology drugs catalogue. QCI Precision Insights is a clinical interpretation service provided by a team of molecular biologists and oncologists who translate molecular data specific to each patient into clinical insights and therapeutic options. Capable of rapidly interpreting any size panel on any testing platform, QCI Precision Insights now enables molecular pathologists and oncologists in Europe to match complex genomic test data to relevant, geographically matched treatment options in minutes for evidence-based, individualized treatment recommendations.


Integrated DNA Technologies xGen Exome Research Panel v2

Integrated DNA Technologies has launched the xGen Exome Research Panel v2.

The next-generation sequencing panel offers improved on-target rates and uniformity, increased sample coverage, updated content, and enhanced performance. The retail price is $8 per sample, which IDT said is a reduction of more than 50 percent, compared to the previous version. Each of the panel's 415,115 probes are individually synthesized on IDT's newest platform, Gemini, and manufactured for one large synthesis lot to ensure reproducible results and avoid lot-to-lot revalidations. Potential applications for the assays include population studies, rare disease research, and oncology, IDT said.


Meridian Bioscience High-Specificity Pfu HS Mix

Meridian Bioscience launched a High-Specificity Pfu Hs Mix to provide high-fidelity amplification and amplification for companion diagnostic and clinical testing. The solution cuts down on the possibility of uneven amplification of diverse types of sequences. Meridian said the mix has "market-leading" properties in terms of inhibitor resistance, multiplexing, and low GC bias and can be used in next-generation sequencing and PCR applications.
