Simple NGS Workflows
Archer® next-generation sequencing (NGS) assays were designed with simplicity in mind. All assays are powered by Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™) enrichment chemistry, which means that the protocols significantly overlap between product lines. Combined with lyophilized, single-use reagents, Archer tech-friendly workflows reduce labor, minimize the potential for user error and eliminate the need for master mixes no matter what assay you choose.
Unified workflows mean maximum efficiency
All Archer assays use the same enrichment chemistry and thus have closely overlapping workflows for tech-friendly, consistent library preparation.
Convenient Panel Format
All Archer assay panels include gene-specific primers, easy-to-handle lyophilized enzymes and Illumina® or Ion Torrent™ platform-specific reagents to generate targeted libraries ready for sequencing. Molecular Barcode adapters are also required but are provided separately for sequencing flexibility.
Gene-specific primers enable amplification on your targets of interest
Each panel includes lyophilized enzymes and platform-specific reagents for library prep
Molecular Barcode Adapters
Platform-specific universal adapters are provided separately for quantitative multiplexing and sample-tracking flexibility
Also, most of the reagents are lyophilized and aliquoted into 8-tube strips to minimize the risk of sample cross-contamination and avoid the need to make master mixes.
