Oxford Gene Technology SureSeq MyPanel NGS Custom FH Panel

Oxford Gene Technology has launched the SureSeq myPanel NGS Custom FH panel for the study of variants in familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). The panel includes exons for LDLR, PCSK9, APOB, LDLRAP1, APOE, LIPA, STAP1 and 14 additional single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with FH. It delivers single nucleotide variation and copy number variation detection on a single small panel and allows customization by 'mix and match' of fully-optimized genes and hotspot content, which enables researchers to selectively sequence relevant regions, the company said.
