We can design targeted panels for any target with a reference sequence. Some examples of target species include humans, animals, plants, insects, bacteria, and viruses. Our sample types include, but are not limited to cfDNA, FFPE samples, blood samples, and tissue samples.
For bacterial panels, a minimum 7 amplicons is required. We can build 7 housekeeping genes to ensure all samples have something being amplified if you’re detecting infection.
For viral panels, the sequence information is very important. HIV for example has many variations and subtypes, which will be difficult. However for viruses with fewer subtypes and less variations, we can be more successful with the design.
