Devyser Thalassemia Kit

Devyser has released the Devyser Thalassemia kit for the analysis of sequence variants in the HBA1, HBA2, and HBB genes in human genomic DNA. Compatible with the Illumina MiSeq and MiniSeq instruments, the research-use-only kit detects all mutations in these genes including SNVs, indels, and copy number variations. The PCR chemistry provides complete and uniform coverage of targeted regions, and enables a high level of overlapping amplicon multiplexing and NGS library preparation with no sample splitting, the company said.
