10 Top Tips for Validating your NGS Assay

Feb 6, 2018 11:32:46 AM No Comments

With new advances in technology, we’re now moving more towards large panel Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) assays and whole exome (WES) and genome sequencing. NGS is gaining popularity thanks to the high-throughput capability and lower cost per sample.

However, validating these complex assays can be tricky, so we’ve compiled some top tips from industry guidelines* to help you...

Transitioning to NGS-based Oncology Panels

Jul 14, 2016 3:36:33 PM No Comments

The high-throughput and increasingly affordable nature of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) has led to its expanded use in routine clinical procedures. The relative simplicity of targeted enrichment cancer panels (available from a number of commercial providers) allows routine laboratories to simultaneously analyze the coding (exonic) regions of multiple cancer-related key genes. Combine this with the statistic diagnostic testing now influencing over 70 percent of all health care decisions1, the setting up or transitioning to NGS-based oncology panels for labs has never been more important.
