We all know NGS analysis can be difficult to navigate. Not only is the human genome complex, but technical errors can occur throughout the entire workflow – from sample preparation, through sequencing and during analysis.
Thankfully, these technical errors can be mitigated by using high-quality reference material. Using the best standards for your assay will help both calibrate your NGS measurements and evaluate your diagnostic performance.
With advances in affordable technologies, there is now a multitude of reference types to choose from including patient material, cell line-derived standards and synthetic spike-ins. In this blog, we shine the spotlight on cell line-derived standards and the distinct advantages these have when used for NGS oncology assays.
