Pacific Biosciences PureTarget Repeat Expansion Panel

Pacific Biosciences has launched the PureTarget repeat expansion panel, a new kit for comprehensive analysis of 20 genes associated with serious neurological disorders, including genes with tandem repeat expansions that are challenging to sequence. 

The 20 genes that comprise the panel are implicated in a wide range of debilitating neurological diseases that afflict children and adults including ataxia, Huntington's disease, myotonic dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and fragile-X disease.

The panel uses the Nanobind PanDNA kit and customers can multiplex 48 samples on the Revio sequencer or 24 on the Sequel IIe. 

PacBio expects to ship the product in late March.
