Roche Heat-Seq Target Enrichment Systems

Roche has launched its Heat-Seq Target Enrichment Systems, which combines molecular inversion probe technology with molecular barcodes in a streamlined workflow to provide researchers with speed and reliability in analyzing sequence data. Molecular barcodes allow users to accurately measure how much sequence data came from the sample itself, how much data was unique, and how much data was redundant due to amplification during the PCR process — something traditional PCR-based methods can't provide, the company said.
