QIAGEN Advances Leadership in Pre-Analytical Solutions for Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) With Launch of 14 New Cancer Gene Panels
Date:7/15/2014

ysis of relevant genes or gene regions in our targeted oncology studies, we found that the pre-validated GeneRead gene panels are robust and have very streamlined workflows. These gene panels are capable of generating sequencing data from the most difficult of tissue samples. The cloud-based bioinformatics resources are very helpful in the interpretation of the data."

QIAGEN's GeneRead technology provides the most cost-effective, time-efficient approach for target enrichment in preparation for NGS runs on any sequencer. Unlike other approaches for sequencers, GeneRead panels use as little as 10 nanograms of starting DNA material per pool. They are compatible with FFPE samples and do not require any specialized instruments. The proprietary algorithms and chemistry provide industry leading coverage (>96% of coding regions), specificity (>90% of reads on target) and uniformity (>90% of bases are covered by at least 20% of the mean coverage depth) for the targeted DNA sequencing. In addition to their quality advantages, QIAGEN gene panels require only three hours to enrich for targets and provide for a substantially reduced time to go from isolated DNA sample to sequencing-ready libraries.

QIAGEN provides a full range of sample technologies, assay panels and library preparation products which today generate substantial revenue and solve important NGS needs in clinical and clinical research applications in particular. QIAGEN also is developing the benchtop GeneReaderTM NGS platform for the same applications. Combined with QIAGEN's existing NGS portfolio, GeneReader is designed to provide a seamless automated workflow from biological sample, through DNA preparation, enrichment, library preparation, sequencing, data analysis and interpretation, to deliver valuable insights into diseases.
