Molecular Loop Biosciences Monkeypox Research Sequencing Panels

Molecular Loop Biosciences has launched the Monkeypox Research Sequencing Panels for monkeypox viral surveillance and variant discovery. A complete library prep solution, the targeting panels, which are available and optimized for both short-read Illumina sequencing and long-read Pacific Biosciences sequencing, offer comprehensive coverage of the monkeypox genome via a four-step workflow, the company said. The panels also contain more than 7800 probes that each has a unique binding site, generating overlapping amplicons tiled along the full length of the monkeypox genome. The redundant probe tiling technology allows for the detection of emerging variants while alleviating the concern of amplicon or allele dropouts that can occur in an amplicon workflow, Molecular Loop said.
