Twist Bioscience Comprehensive Viral Research Panel
Twist Bioscience has released the Twist Comprehensive Viral Research Panel, a next-generation sequencing-based, research-use only assay that includes 3,153 viral genomes and enables identification of new and divergent viral species. The product uses over a million unique probes targeting sequences compiled from RefSeq, FluDB, and VIPRdb, representing all viral families containing at least one virus known to infect humans.
The panel covers all viral types: single- and double-stranded DNA and RNA genomes. It detects viral co-infections and can be used for metagenomic surveillance applications in stool samples.
The panel will be bundled with analysis software from One Codex.
