Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™) Target Enrichment Chemistry
At the heart of every Archer® assay is AMP, a target enrichment chemistry developed by molecular pathologists to create target-enriched libraries for next-generation sequencing (NGS). AMP leverages the power of unidirectional gene-specific primers (GSPs), sample indexes and molecular barcodes for multiplex targeted NGS using low-input clinical sample types such as FFPE sections. AMP proprietary chemistry is flexible, so it can be used for applications in targeted RNA sequencing, genomic DNA sequencing and various genotyping applications.
Flexible Input Types
AMP works well with both RNA and DNA inputs and is at the heart of all Archer NGS assays.
