Twist Bioscience AsterExome Panel
Apr 27, 2023
Twist Bioscience and Aster Insights have launched the AsterExome panel. The targeted sequencing assay blends Twist's Exome 2.0 panel with additional coverage for target regions known to contain 620 genes associated with cancer. It helps identify copy number variants, which can be helpful in identifying cancers driven by gene amplifications, and maintains somatic mutation detection accuracy, sensitivity, and precision.
