Qiagen QiaSeq Multimodal Panels

Qiagen has launched a new workflow, called QiaSeq Multimodal Panels, for the simultaneous preparation of DNA and RNA libraries for next-generation sequencing. The panels require an input as low as 10 nanograms of total nucleic acid and the workflow takes about nine hours. Both libraries are generated from the same sample and allow for the analysis of DNA variants, RNA fusions, and gene expression levels.
