Agilent SureSelect Human All Exon V6, V6+UTR, and V6+COSMIC

Agilent Technologies has added the SureSelect Human All Exon V6, V6+UTR, and V6+COSMIC to its line of target-enrichment products. The new products are designed to address the limitations of exome sequencing, targeting hard-to-capture and multi-mapping regions. The products also increase the sensitivity of variant calling and minimize false negative calls, Agilent said. 

The new products are compatible with the custom design capabilities of SureDesign, the sample quality control provided by the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer and 2200 Tapestation, the reproducible performance of the Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform, and the guided analysis workflows enabled by SureCall software.
