Integrated DNA Technologies NGS Discovery Pools
Integrated DNA Technologies this week launched its NGS Discovery Pools, individually synthesized, 5'-biotinylated oligo pools designed to enable researchers to rapidly build custom panels at a fraction of the cost compared to conventional panels. According to the firm, the NGS Discovery Pools offer the quality of individual synthesis at a speed and scale needed for discovery in precision medicine. It also noted that the new pools will enable its customers to use its "high-quality capture technology for smaller projects and in earlier stages where content may still be changing, allowing for a smooth transition to Lockdown Probes as projects are scaled up and validated for clinical use." The firm's xGen Lockdown Probes are already commercially available for target capture in clinical sequencing applications.
