NGS roadshow - Takara

Join us for a tour of our most recent NGS technologies and see how they can unlock new horizons for your research.
In this seminar, we will discuss how transcriptomics, genomics and epigenomics are shaping our understanding of cellular complexity and heterogeneity. Technical advents in single-cell sequencing and new sensitive approaches for sequencing of clinical samples now enable you to gain more insight from your precious samples, to contribute to a better understanding of disease mechanisms, and develop more effective methods for diagnosis and treatment.

Date : Tuesday 04/06/2019

Time : 10h00 - 11h30

Location : Radiology meeting room (UZ Brussel - route 865)

IDT rhAmpSeq presentation @ VUB/UZ Brussel

IDT recently developed a novel amplicon sequencing technology, called the rhAmpSeq™ system, which leverages a proprietary rhPCR chemistry (also known as rhAmp™ PCR). Using a unique, two-enzyme system and specially designed, blocked primers, the rhAmpSeq system enables high levels of multiplexing of targeted assays in a single-tube, while significantly reducing the risk of primer-dimer formation and non-specific amplification events, which are both common problems with other amplicon-based sequencing methods. The result is an easy-to-use, elegant NGS library preparation solution with a low number of components and straightforward workflow steps to prepare DNA for sequencing on Illumina platforms.
