Input considerations for TCR and BCR sequencing

NGS is a powerful method to investigate the immune repertoire, and using RNA as the starting material has several advantages over DNA. Plus, sample-specific cell distributions and cell type-specific mRNA variations should be considered when analyzing the functional immune repertoire to minimize erroneous clonotyping.

Archer® Analysis tool: CNV Visualization in v5.1

The CNV visualization tool within Archer Analysis was designed to maximize analytical capabilities for a variety of NGS library preparations. By giving the user the ability to customize the sensitivity settings based on assay and normalization requirements, copy number gains and losses, in addition to novel variants, can be detected with exon-level resolution and effortlessly tracked within the database.

FLT3-ITD Detection Tech Note

ArcherDX scientists developed Archer® VariantPlex® myeloid assays to detect FLT3-ITDs, along with other myeloid-specific variants, by targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS). A new technical note discusses how Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™) chemistry in conjunction with the data-optimized analysis algorithm in Archer Analysis enable accurate detection of FLT3-ITDs across all sizes and insertion sites from clinical-type samples with 100% accuracy.

AMPlify your immune repertoire sequencing

AMP enrichment chemistry and Archer Analysis software reduce PCR bias and minimize PCR and sequencing errors that plague amplicon-based approaches by delivering reliable BCR and TCR sequencing. Immunoverse TCR and BCR kits enable quantitative and sensitive clonotype detection, with sequences detectable at fractions as low as one in a million. Coupled with the fully automated Archer Analysis software and user-owned data, a wide variety of research applications are available to you.

Comprehensive Thyroid and Lung (CTL) kits enable parallel detection of copy number variants and expression levels by next-generation sequencing

CNVs are common oncogenic drivers in lung cancer that result in altered expression profiles. Here, we show that AMP™ enables sensitive NGS-based detection of CNVs and expression profiling of multiple genes relevant to lung cancer.

Anchored Multiplex PCR enables sensitive detection and internal verification of novel gene fusions

Current methods to detect gene fusions in clinical samples, such as FISH and IHC, cannot identify novel fusion partners. AMP-based NGS is a sensitive method to detect both known and unknown gene fusions. In this article, we show that AMP-based NGS detected an EML4-ALK fusion in a sample that was ambiguous by ALK break-apart FISH testing.

Breakpoint identification is more sensitive than expression imbalance to detect gene fusions

Expression imbalance can be used to infer the presence of a gene fusion. However, recent data suggest that breakpoint identification may be a more accurate approach. Here, we show that breakpoint identification is more sensitive than expression imbalance to detect gene fusions by AMP-based NGS.

ArcherDX target enrichment kits for NGS detect all major types of oncogenic MET aberrations

Deregulation of the receptor tyrosine kinase, MET, is implicated in a variety of human cancers. This article reviews the underlying genetic aberrations that drive MET deregulation, and how each of these can be detected with target enrichment kits provided by ArcherDX, Inc. for use in downstream NGS assays.
