Fluidigm Advanta CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay
Fluidigm has launched the Advanta CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay, a next-generation sequencing library prep workflow for sequencing of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. Developed for use with the company's Juno system, the assay automates target enrichment of CFTR variants from each of the gene's 27 exons and selected intronic regions using microfluidic technology. The assay can produce 48 to 1,500 or more NGS libraries each week from DNA derived from blood, saliva, or buccal swabs. Each integrated microfluidic circuit features open inlets to simplify the addition of new assay over time, the company said.
