Swift Biosciences Accel Amplicon CFTR Panel and Accel-NGS XL Library Prep Kit
Swift Biosciences has launched the Accel Amplicon CFTR panel, which detects a wide range of variants and mutants in all exonic and select intronic regions of the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene. It produces sequence libraries in two hours, allows the user to process three to four times more libraries per day, and requires as little as 10 nanograms of sample input from either whole blood, dried blood spots, saliva, or buccal swabs.
The company has also launched the Accel-NGS XL Library Prep kit, which optimizes library preparation, particularly for the PacBio's Single Molecule, Real-Time SMRT sequencing. The kit provides longer sequencing reads with a single-tube workflow.
