IDT rhAmpSeq Targeted Sequencing System

Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) has launched the rhAmpSeq targeted sequencing system. The proprietary rhAmpSeq chemistry enables highly multiplexed target amplification for sequencing on Illumina platforms with high on-target rates and uniform coverage. Its applications include human disease research, sample tracking and analysis, CRISPR genome editing analysis, and agricultural biotechnology. The system makes use of IDT's RNase H2 PCR technology, employing an RNase H2/DNA polymerase enzyme system coupled with RNA-DNA hybrid primers. It has been optimized for panel sizes from tens to thousands of amplicons in a single reaction.
