Mission Bio Tapestri, Panels

Mission Bio has updated its Tapestri single-cell DNA analysis platform, which is now compatible with the Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencer to allow for multiplexing and larger panels.

The company has also launched two new panels for myeloid disorders and for solid tumor profiling. The Tapestri Single-Cell DNA Myeloid Panel, designed to cover several myeloid disorders, targets single-nucleotide variants and indels in 47 genes. The Tapestri Single-Cell Tumor Hotspot Panel targets SNV and indel hotspot mutations across 50 genes involved in different solid tumor types and has been tested with breast, lung, prostate, and colorectal cancer nuclei from fresh-frozen tissue samples.
