Integrated DNA Technologies has launched the xGen Exome Research Panel v2.
The next-generation sequencing panel offers improved on-target rates and uniformity, increased sample coverage, updated content, and enhanced performance. The retail price is $8 per sample, which IDT said is a reduction of more than 50 percent, compared to the previous version.
Each of the panel's 415,115 probes are individually synthesized on IDT's newest platform, Gemini, and manufactured for one large synthesis lot to ensure reproducible results and avoid lot-to-lot revalidations.
Potential applications for the assays include population studies, rare disease research, and oncology.
