Swift Biosciences Accel-Amplicon Custom NGS Panels
Swift Biosciences has launched Accel-Amplicon Custom NGS Panels, a targeted DNA sequencing product that enables clinical researchers to rapidly design highly focused panels to discover, validate, and screen disease genes and their variants. The platform-agnostic panel supports a wide range of input sample types including fresh and fresh-frozen tissue, whole blood, blood spot cards, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, cell-free DNA, circulating tumor DNA, buccal swabs, whole genome amplified DNA and purified DNA. The panels require 10 nanograms of sample input, and enables library prep in under two hours. Swift said that it also partnered with informatics firm Genialis to integrate alignment, trimming, QC, and variant calling into one simple pipeline.
