Comprehensive Viral Research Panel
Featured Product ADVERTISEMENT Apr 19, 2021
The frequent emergence of novel viral pathogens with pandemic potential highlights the need for improved methods for detecting and surveilling novel pathogens. Unlike sequence-dependent approaches like qPCR, next-generation sequencing (NGS) can be used to identify viruses without existing sequence knowledge. Existing target enrichment panels substantially increase the analytical sensitivity of NGS for this purpose, but comprehensive panels for unbiased virus identification are lacking. Filling this unmet need, the Twist Comprehensive Viral Research Panel is a hybridization-based target enrichment solution that allows researchers to quickly capture and sequence unknown pathogens and highly divergent viral strains, which can present a serious and recurring threat to global public health.
The Twist Comprehensive Viral Research Panel is bundled with One Codex, a cloud-based platform for metagenomic sequencing data analysis and visualization, offering a complete end-to-end solution. Ideal for both research and clinical use cases, One Codex provides users with customizable workflows for interpreting and sharing viral-related NGS sequencing data. When purchasing the panel, customers are provided with detailed onboarding instructions and credits that grant access to the cloud platform.
