Streamlined Workflow

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.

Key Features
Easy To Use Reagents

Reagents are lyophilized (freeze-dried) for ease of use and packaged into single-use tube strips to avoid contamination.

Flexible Formats

Panels are available in 8-tube strips or 96-tube reaction plates for run size flexibility.

Unified workflows

All Archer tests leverage AMP enrichment chemistry so workflows significantly overlap.

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.

Assay-specific primers

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.
