Detecting fusions using the Archer FusionPlex Sarcoma Panel
ArcherDX, Inc. has developed a panel for the rapid detection of sarcoma-associated translocations from total nucleic acid isolated from tumor samples—including FFPE preserved specimens. Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) enables rapid preparation of highly multiplexed next-generation sequencing (NGS) libraries for targeted capture of mRNAs produced from fusion genes. The Archer technology permits the simultaneous detection of both known recurrent fusions as well as previously unidentified fusions at key breakpoints in target genes. Archer’s Sarcoma panel offers a complete fusion detection solution, from library preparation through data analysis, for both the Illumina and Ion Torrent platforms.
