- Sequencing performed in CAP laboratories.

- The xGEN hybridization panel can capture and provide appropriate representation of samples with high GC and AT contents.

- Fast turnaround time.
- Suitable for different types of samples and vast variety of research.

- Well established exome enrichment probe.
- Comprehensive and the most up-to-date coverage of protein coding regions.

Agilent V8:
- Ability to cover the TERT promoter region and other hard-to-capture exons, as well as having a better uniformity of its coverage distribution.

Twist 2.0:
- Offers clinically relevant panels such as Clinvar, alongside other genomic databases for translational research.
- Based on the current UCSC mm9 mouse genome and has a full coverage of the mouse exome by capturing 221,784 exons and 24,306 genes.
*For project w/o bioinformatic analysis. TAT is from confirmation of library preparation after sample QC and is subject to change based on sample size, bioinformatic analysis and additional services.
Option 1: Clinical grade
For research projects that require clinical grade exome sequencing, our CAP certified laboratories provide services and results that are compliant to strict regulations while meeting our fast turn-around time of 10 working days. One of the probes operated by our licensed personnel includes the xGEN Exome Hybridization Panel by IDT.

Option 2: Cost effectiveness
For research projects that will require both versatility and experience with different types of samples while remaining cost-effective, we recommend the Agilent SureSelect All Exon V6 panel. The UTR spike-in for Agilent SureSelect All Exon V6 panel is also available in our offerings.

Option 3: Comprehensive
For research projects that are interested in proceeding with the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of protein coding regions from databases, we offer two panels for your consideration:

Agilent SureSelect All Exon V8
Notable Features: Released in 2021, Agilent SureSelect All Exon V8 is the newest probe by Agilent. The latest V8 probe not only provides more specificity and a more comprehensive coverage in comparison to the previous probe, Agilent SureSelect All Exon V7, but also made a few improvements. Some of these improvements include the ability to cover the TERT promoter region and other hard-to-capture exons, as well as having a better uniformity of its coverage distribution.

Twist Exome 2.0
Notable Features: Released in 2021, the Twist Exome 2.0, is unique in that it offers clinically relevant panels such as Clinvar, alongside other genomic databases for translational research. This will allow researchers to have more clinical insight into their research as both Clinvar and Gencode provides the ability to identify genomes linked to clinical phenotypes.

Option 4: Mouse samples
For research projects that is currently working with mouse samples for human-based research, we offer the Agilent SureSelectXT Mouse probe as an option.
