CTL panel

The Archer® FusionPlex® Comprehensive Thyroid and Lung (CTL) panel is a targeted NGS panel to detect gene fusions, SNV, indels, splicing and gene expression in 36 genes associated with lung and thyroid cancers. This panel complements the Archer® VariantPlex® CTL Panel for comprehensive mutation profiling of fusions, CNVs and variants.
Key Features
Comprehensive Fusion Detection

Detect known and novel fusions in lung and thyroid cancers.

Confirm fusion events

Expression imbalance is detected from molecular barcodes for fusion confirmation.

Detect splice variants

Identify expressed EGFRvIII and MET exon 14 skipping events.

Expression profiling

Molecular barcodes enable expression profiling of relevant targets.

Streamlined, lyophilized workflow

Minimize hands-on time and replication error.
