Genome Diagnostics NGSgo-MX11-3 Multiplexing for HLA Typing
Genome Diagnostics has launched NGSgo-MX11-3, its latest addition to a series of singleplex and multiplex amplification strategies for HLA typing by NGS. NGSgo-MX11-3 consists of amplification primers for eleven HLA genes — HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, -DQB1 and -DPB1, DRB3/4/5, DQA1, and DPA-1 — in three mixes per sample. The three-tube design results in low noise levels and well-balanced alleles, making the data quality of the 11-loci multiplex similar to a singleplex strategy, Genome Diagnostics said. NGSgo-MX11-3 is available on a research-use-only basis. The firm anticipates that it will become available as a CE-marked IVD.
