TruSight Tumor 26

TruSight Tumor 26 takes a deeper view of variation in solid tumors including lung, colon, melanoma, gastric and ovarian. This enables clinical researchers to identify low-frequency variation across 26 genes for a more comprehensive view of somatic variation.

  • Highly accurate variant analysis at limit of detection below 5% variant allele frequency across 174 amplicons, with 1000x minimum coverage of each region
  • Exceptional sample success rates with minimal DNA input for accurate base calling, even in degraded FFPE samples
  • Coverage of complete exons for analysis of molecular heterogeneity in highly relevant content selected from CAP1 and NCCN2 guidelines, and late stage clinical trials3

This panel provides amplicon-based library preparation reagents, DNA QC, sample indexes and oligos targeting identified regions of interest. Sufficient product is supplied for 48 samples. It is supported on the MiniSeq, MiSeq, NextSeq, and HiSeq sequencing systems.
