The xGen Sample ID Amplicon Panel is a streamlined amplicon NGS prep kit that includes 95 primer pairs targeting exonic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with high minor allele frequency (MAF) and 9 amplicons to determine sex. This
panel is compatible with circulating, cell-free DNA (cfDNA), as well as formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) samples. With the advent of liquid biopsy assays of circulating nucleic acids in oncology research studies, proper tracking of samples
has become increasingly critical. This panel represents a powerful and reliable method for tracking and identifying markers in a variety of sample types including liquid biopsy samples.
The power of discrimination of this panel is over 1 in 85,000 , making this product suitable for longitudinal studies and scenarios in which genetic fingerprinting is relevant to research design and analysis in various areas including genotyping, research
on noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), research on transplant rejection, and others. This product is a complete kit that includes all elements necessary to generate multiplex libraries compatible with Illumina® sequencing platforms, including
primer pairs and indexed sequencing adapters.
As seen in Figure 1, xGen Sample ID Amplicon Panels have a single tube workflow that is done in as little as 2 hours.
