Thermo Fisher Scientific Ion Torrent Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Ion Torrent Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay, a targeted next-generation sequencing research panel for simultaneous analysis of 74 relevant genes. The panel is designed to interrogate DNA mutations, RNA fusion transcripts, and gene expression levels associated with myeloid cancers in a single run yielding results in two to three days. The Ion Chef System is used for library preparation, reducing total hands-on time to under 45 minutes. In addition, access to the Oncomine Knowledge Reporter will allow users to link variants to relevant labels, guidelines, and global clinical trials. The assay is also fully compatible with the Ion PGM and Ion S5 systems, Thermo Fisher said.
