As its cost and complexity continue to decrease, one of the main bottleneck in NGS lies in bioinformatics analysis and interpretation. Typically, specialized knowledge is required to customize a pipeline, fully understand the sequencing results, and ascribe meaning to variant findings. This is not possible in many laboratories which are battling resource and expertise challenges, while faced with the need to rapidly implement an NGS assay. Here we present the GeneReader NGS System comprising all elements required to lead you from sample preparation to generation of an actionable result. Including fully integrated bioinformatics for analysis and interpretation the workflow was specifically designed for labs of any size to conduct cancer clinical research.
