Unlock the potential of next-generation sequencing
Without NGS, a modern laboratory is unimaginable today.
Prof. Paul Hofman, CHU Nice, France

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) can deliver unprecedented insights, unraveling the intricacies of the genome and transcriptome in biomarker research, gene expression studies, viral epidemiology and disease surveillance, as well as comprehensive genomic profiling to identify variants implicated in cancer and other diseases. However, challenges such as workflow optimization, customization and data analysis and interpretation can hinder progress.

High-throughput genomic surveillance of emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants B.1.1.7 and B.1.351

The emergence of new, highly transmissible SARS-CoV-2 variants has elevated the need for high-throughput whole viral genome sequencing to accelerate genomic surveillance efforts. Cataloging new variants and evaluating the impact of the accumulated mutations is critical for vaccine development and effective public health measures. Explore how our high-performance, scalable NGS workflows with integrated bioinformatics facilitate accurate SARS-CoV-2 variant detection and phylogeographic tracking.

Expanding disease insights with exome sequencing

The coding portion of the genome holds tantalizing information on multiple diseases. Unlocking these details through exome sequencing can reveal powerful insights into disease-associated variants. However, coverage issues, long turnaround times and data analysis bottlenecks can diminish progress. Explore a time-saving workflow that seamlessly combines uniform exome coverage with streamlined secondary analysis, rapid variant filtering and annotation.
