Bioo Scientific Launches BRCA1/2 Amplicon Panel for Detection of Somatic Mutations in FFPE Samples

June 14, 2016

Bioo Scientific recently launched the NEXTflex™ BRCA1 and BRCA2 Amplicon Panel for FFPE Illumina-Compatible Sequencing, for the detection of clinically relevant somatic mutations in DNA isolated from FFPE samples, to facilitate variant discovery and confirmation. This kit is a cost-effective, optimized solution offering best-in-class performance for on-target percentage and coverage uniformity.

The NEXTflex BRCA1 and BRCA2 Amplicon Panels are complete kits that include all components necessary for rapidly generating ready-to-sequence libraries, including primer pairs, library prep reagents, size selection beads, and indexed barcodes.

This kit, facilitating the detection of somatic mutations in the BRCA1/2 genes from DNA isolated from FFPE samples, is Bioo Scientific’s most recent addition to its line of BRCA amplicon panels. Previous kits in this line allow identification of germline mutations in DNA isolated from fresh or frozen materials for both Illumina and Ion Torrent-based sequencing.
