New targeted sequencing workflow combines pre-validated content with easy customization and new analysis tools to accelerate variant discovery and screening
(ANN ARBOR, Mich. – April 18, 2018) Swift Biosciences today announced the commercial release of its Accel-Amplicon™ Plus Cancer Panels, a suite of nine tumor-specific and focused gene panels to facilitate targeted cancer sequencing. The Accel-Amplicon technology enables simultaneous detection of single nucleotide variants, copy number variants and small insertion and deletions to achieve comprehensive and exon-level hotspot coverage of clinically-relevant genes. It also allows researchers to combine pre-validated content and their own targets into a fast, single-tube assay to develop more informative and scalable workflows to better achieve their scientific goals.
Accel-Amplicon Plus provides a modular, mix-and-match capability that gives translational laboratories greater flexibility to deploy more than one strategy. Laboratories may either begin with a broad gene set to comprehensively profile tumors and then refine the content to the most informative markers, or start with a very focused assay to routinely screen known, clinically actionable variants. Each assay can be designed to accommodate up to 1500 amplicons per panel, are designed and wet-lab validated by Swift’s experts, and are fully compatible with degraded FFPE or diluted liquid biopsy samples.
“Accel-Amplicon Plus Cancer Panels could revolutionize cancer and oncology research,” said Haley Fiske, Chief Commercial Office at Swift Biosciences. “By integrating pre-validated and customizable content into a single panel, clinical researchers can maximize data generated from every tumor sample and accelerate their efforts to discover and screen cancer variants.”
The Accel-Amplicon Plus Cancer Panels consist of nine assays:
