NGS Panels for Liquid Biopsy Samples

The Archer® Reveal ctDNA™ 28 panel for Illumina® is an advanced and user-friendly solution for targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) of circulating cell-free tumor DNA (ccfDNA/cfDNA/ctDNA) from 28 genes commonly found mutated in solid tumor type cancers.
Key Features
Relevant fragment capture

Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™)-based target enrichment preferentially enriches for highly fragmented ctDNA fragments over genomic cell-free DNA (cfDNA) to reduce background and increase detection sensitivity of low-allelic fraction (AF) mutations

Single-day library prep

NGS-ready libraries can be prepared in under 8 hours with less than 1 hour of hands-on time, providing sequencing results in as little as 3 days.

Error correction & quantitative analysis

Unique molecular barcode sequences ligated prior to amplification enable duplicate read binning and advanced error correction for confident variant calls.

Sensitive & robust variant detection

Reliably detect high-AF (5%) variants using as little as 5ng total cfDNA input and low AF (1%) variants from as little as 10ng.
