Olink Genomics this month will launch SelectorKit, the company's first kit product for multiplexed enrichment of DNA targets for sequencing that uses its Selector Technology.

The first version of the kit, a custom kit initially available through an early-access program, will allow users to target up to 100 genes per reaction. It requires a microgram of input DNA, is compatible with "all major sequencing platforms," and requires no dedicated instrumentation, according to the Uppsala, Sweden-based company. Typical applications include pathway sequencing and deep resequencing in large sets of cancer patients, according to Olink.
