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 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 to cover entirely. However for viruses with fewer sub-types and less variations, we can be more successful with the design. Please submit your design requests to the ParagonDesigner portal or email technical support if you have questions pertaining to your specific applications.
