Fluidigm Advanta Solid Tumor NGS Library Prep Assay
Fluidigm has launched the Advanta Solid Tumor NGS Library Prep Assay for the simultaneous detection of somatic variants across 53 solid tumor genes using a microfluidic library prep workflow. The assay was developed for use with the company's Juno system which automates the target enrichment of single-nucleotide variations, indels, and copy number variations for subsequent analysis on Illumina sequencing platforms. The assay comes with a new Juno LP 8.8.6 microfluidic cartridge that enables users to easily process up to six different panels simultaneously with 10-fold lower sample input. Users can also add new cancer markers to the Advanta panel using Fluidigm D3 assay design services, the company said.
