Swift Biosciences Accel-Amplicon Custom NGS Panels
Swift Biosciences has launched Accel-Amplicon Custom NGS Panels, a targeted DNA sequencing product that enables clinical researchers to rapidly design highly focused panels to discover, validate, and screen disease genes and their variants. The platform-agnostic panel supports a wide range of input sample types including fresh and fresh-frozen tissue, whole blood, blood spot cards, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, cell-free DNA, circulating tumor DNA, buccal swabs, whole genome amplified DNA and purified DNA. The panels require 10 nanograms of sample input, and enables library prep in under two hours. Swift said that it also partnered with informatics firm Genialis to integrate alignment, trimming, QC, and variant calling into one simple pipeline.
GenePOC Group B Streptococcus Direct Swab Molecular Test
GenePOC launched its Group B Streptococcus Direct Swab molecular test in Europe. The assay is for use on Revogene, the firm's microfluidic real-time PCR instrument, and will help minimize the risk of GBS transmission from mother to baby. It also will help to optimize antibiotic stewardship, said GenePOC, a member of the Debiopharm Group.
iGenomX Riptide High-Throughput Rapid Library Prep Kit
iGenomX has launched Riptide High-Throughput Rapid Library Prep (HT-RLP), which allows users to create up to 960 next-generation sequencing libraries in a short time and at low cost. According to the company, the protocol is simple, easy to automate, and avoids cumbersome processing steps such as fragmentation, repair, and DNA ligation. The kit is intended for use with small genomes and synthetic DNA constructs for applications such as microbiome screening, whole-genome sequencing of microbial genomes, quality control of synthetic DNA products, and high-throughput genotyping by sequencing.
