"The new ThruPLEX Taq-seq Kit reflects our ongoing commitment to enhancing genomic research by providing the most advanced DNA library preparation technology available," said James Koziarz, PhD, CEO of Rubicon. "We believe that the innovation, excellence and utility of our growing portfolio of DNA library preparation products will continue to fuel the robust sales growth of greater than 40% that we have reported every year since 2010."
ThruPLEX proprietary stem-loop adapters provide unique molecular tags to label individual fragments, allowing computational reduction of the false positive rate resulting in high specificity and sensitivity for base calling in rare alleles. ThruPLEX Tag-seq libraries can be enriched using commercially-available or custom-designed capture panels from leading providers and can be used with liquid biopsy, fresh tissue or FFPE samples. The ThruPLEX Taq-seq Early Access Program is available to both academic and commercial researchers. For more information and to apply to participate, click here.
Jinglan Zhang, PhD, Technical Director for NGS, Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratories, noted, "ThruPLEX Tag-seq was easy to use with its simple and straightforward protocol. The unique molecular tags reduced the false positive variant calls and enabled accurate detections of true mutations present at low frequencies."
