Integrated DNA Technologies Archer FusionPlex Core Solid Tumor Panel

Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) has launched the IDT Archer FusionPlex Core Solid Tumor Panel, a cancer research RNA sequencing panel that has been expanded and optimized to cover additional single-nucleotide variants and indels compared to earlier panels. The panel contains gene-specific primer (GSP) oligonucleotides targeting 56 genes and can be paired with Archer Analysis software. AMP-based library preparation for Archer NGS research assays can be implemented in 1.5 days with minimal hands-on time, the company said.
