Targeted sequencing can provide the researcher a focused set of genes to investigate when a specific condition or disease state is suspected. The investigator can identify regions of interest and select panels to interrogate known disease-causing genes appropriate to the phenotype. With both research use only (RUO) tools and an IVD solution for clinical use, options are plentiful for further targeted analysis.
The TruSight Cystic Fibrosis 139-Variant Assay is an FDA-cleared, CE-IVD-marked NGS test designed to detect 139 CFTR variants as defined in the CFTR2 database. Other methods test only for those variants most commonly found in Caucasians, potentially missing CF-causing variants across broader ethnic groups. The assay offers the largest CF variant panel to overcome this bias and provide comprehensive detection across diverse demographics.1Learn More
