Enabling Discoveries with New Sample Preparation Methods for Next-Generation Sequencing

New discoveries in next-generation sequencing (NGS) require the ability to obtain sequencing information from increasingly complex samples — for example, from a single cell or a specific subset of nucleic acids. In this webinar, new sample technologies for NGS that enable sequencing from small amounts of input DNA, including single cells, as well as highly specific ribosomal depletion that maintains the accurate representation of the RNA profile will be discussed. In addition, a new system that enables uniform target enrichment for detecting rare events, such as low-prevalence somatic mutation in cancer research samples, will also be introduced.
