The NGS panel you really want
Design your own panel with genes of interest for targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) using RNA, DNA or ctDNA.
ArcherDX offers two options for custom panel creation: Archer® Assay Designer and Designer Pro.
Expert Primer Design
Primer design is the foundation of NGS-based panel performance, and our in-house design experts leverage the design flexibility of Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™) chemistry to ensure that all primers generated in Assay Designer deliver high uniformity and low off-targeting.
Simple and Intuitive
Assay Designer has a simple, intuitive interface to help you quickly build the target panel that you want. Browse through hundreds of wet lab-tested and verified designs or use state-of-the-art primer design tools to build the panel to fit your needs.
Assay Designer boasts cutting-edge primer design software and an expansive internal knowledge base of target designs and validated primer sets. Designed with maximum flexibility and unparalleled performance in mind, you can be assured that your targets will achieve complete coverage.
With Designer Pro, your panel is iteratively designed and functionally validated on a range of sample types and qualities. From research to data reviews, panel configuration, training and post launch support, we’ve got you covered.

Save some time with an ArcherDX Focus Panel
What’s your focus?
All Archer panels are easily modified, however, Archer Focus panels make great building-blocks for your custom panel. They are small, disease-specific panels of pre-validated targets that are made to order. Each can be used as a starting point in Assay Designer to accommodate your needs.
Focus panels are great starting points for building customized panels.
