CleanPlex® for MGI SARS-CoV-2 Kit for COVID-19 coronavirus detection, tracking, and research via amplicon-based target enrichment for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) on MGI Tech’s DNBSEQ platforms
Paragon Genomics designed a highly multiplexed target enrichment panel covering the entire genome of SARS-CoV-2 virus (except for 92 bases at the ends). The panel enables complete genome sequencing and epidemiological studies of the new SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. With our CleanPlex technology, the entire genome of the virus can be amplified from RNA to sequence-ready libraries in 5 hours. Two versions of this the panel are available for two major sequencing platforms: Illumina and MGI. CleanPlex Technology allows the ease and flexibility to sequence samples for confident infectious disease surveillance and research.
- Significant Cost Savings
98% reduction in sequencing cost. Only 0.2M reads per sample required versus 10M reads required by many shotgun metagenomics sequencing methods.
- High Coverage of Target Regions
99% coverage of the entire SARS-CoV-2 genome
- Sensitive Detection
Can detect down to 1 copy with high confidence compared 3-5 copies by RT-qPCR (1)
- Fast, Streamlined Workflow
Generate sequencing-ready libraries in just 5.5 hours using a rapid, four-step protocol including RT step with minimal hands on time.
- Superb Performance
Prepare high-quality NGS libraries with excellent on-target performance using CleanPlex Technology to enable efficient use of sequencing reads. CleanPlex panels’ on-target rates are usually much higher than those of hybrid captured-based small target enrichment panels.
The CleanPlex SARS-CoV-2 Kit contains the CleanPlex Multiplex PCR Primers and CleanPlex Targeted Library Kit with RT components. CleanPlex Indexed PCR Primers and CleanMag® Magnetic Beads are ordered separately to complete the workflow from input RNA to sequencing-ready NGS libraries.
