SureSeq Ovarian Cancer Panel and NGS Library Preparation Kit

Oxford Gene Technology has expanded it portfolio of NGS products with the addition of the SureSeq Ovarian Cancer Panel and SureSeq NGS Library Preparation Kit. The ovarian cancer panel is a hybridization-based enrichment panel which covers all coding exons of seven key genes of importance in ovarian cancer research: BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, PTEN, ATM, ATR, and NF1. The library preparation kit streamlines the NGS sample prep workflow to reduce hands-on steps and turnaround times. The panel allows detection of germline mutations in DNA derived from blood as well as both germline and somatic mutations in DNA derived from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue. The high sensitivity of the panel enables more accurate detection of low-frequency variants, commonly found in heterogeneous cancer samples, than obtained using alternative NGS techniques, said OGT in a statement.
