WaferGen Launches SmartChip TE - A Novel Target Enrichment Solution for Next-Gen Sequencing (NGS) Aimed at Clinical Applications
Date:5/9/2013

developing in our service and product portfolio. We are looking forward to working with WaferGen's team on productizing a number of gene panels that are relevant for diagnosing human disease with a high unmet medical need. In addition, we are planning to test and deploy WaferGen's platform in a number of additional molecular applications."

Dr. Phillip Gray , Director of Genomic Services at Ambry Genetics, stated: "As an early customer of the first target enrichment technologies to hit the market over 5 years ago, Ambry has extensive experience working with all types of target enrichment platforms. We are excited about WaferGen's SmartChip TE technology as it gives us another target enrichment option when designing custom solutions for our clients. Our initial evaluation of the technology has yielded good results and we look forward to using this platform in the future."

An important part of the SmartChip TE solution is a database of validated assays covering the whole human exome, which was developed in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Jo Vandesompele at Ghent University. Having PCR assays ready on demand provides our customers with fast turnaround times for their custom panels. In addition, it enables them to build the required flexibility in their study design by allowing them to easily change genes or targets in future studies. Furthermore, building upon three decades of molecular diagnostics laboratories' experience with PCR target amplification, identified variants can be confirmed with qPCR (or traditional Sanger sequencing) using the exact same PCR assay as deployed in the initial Next-Gen test. While available as a separate product with a low capital cost, one can also envision that SmartChip TE will add important utility to the full scale SmartChip System under the MyDesign concept, which already offers a wide array of nano-qPCR applications with be
