Seminar: Target Next Gen Sequencing Microarrays

November 13, 2013 @ 11:30 AM - 1:45 PM

Agilent Logo“Lunch and learn” from Agilent Technologies:

Speaker: Matt Angel, Product Specialist

Talk 1: Agilent SureSelect and HaloPlex Target Enrichment

Targeted next generation sequencing kits are powerful genetic tools used to enable rapid discovery of SNPs, InDels, and fusion transcripts, etc. in a focused set of genes, exons, and/or genomic regions. They are also emerging molecular diagnostic tools to screen known mutations and identify novel mutations in genetic diseases, including cancer. With over 350 publications citing SureSelect/Haloplex, Agilent Technologies is the leading provider for target enrichment applications with the broadest product portfolio in both basic and clinical fields.

  • Hybridization-based SureSelect system and PCR-based HaloPlex to allow target regions from 5 kb to 100 Mb
  • Custom and ready-to-use DNA, RNA, and Methylation Kits: Exome, Kinome, RNA-Kinome and Methylnome
  • Products for all next generation sequencing platforms: Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq; SOLiD 5500, Ion Torrent PGM; 454; PacBio
  • Up to 96 barcodes to maximize sequencing efficiency
  • Complete solutions from library construction to data analysis
  • Overnight Protocols
