The CleanPlex® Respiratory Research Panel combines SARS-CoV-2 whole genome amplification with ~80 strategically designed primers to cover characteristic regions that span multiple gene segments for each Influenza A subtype H1N1, H1N2, H3N2, and Influenza B. As a result of more targets, the higher coverage and increased sensitivity make this panel more suitable for high-throughput screening strategies such as testing multi-sample pools, than qPCR methods with only 1 to 2 targets per subtype. The influenza primers were expertly designed in consideration of over 45,000 viral genome sequences to generate highly specific, but also universally conserved targets for each influenza subtype to allow confident detection throughout flu seasons, regardless of changes in strain prevalence.
Built upon the CleanPlex SARS-CoV-2 Research and Surveillance Panel, the Respiratory Research Panel addresses the need to assay the SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses concurrently during the overlapping flu season and the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel utilizes the CleanPlex multiplex PCR-based targeted sequencing technology to provide an easy-to-use, fast, and comprehensive solution for detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza viruses, influenza subtyping, and SARS-CoV-2 mutation analysis, tracking, and surveillance for informed infection control through comprehensive sequence information.
- Significant Cost Savings
99% reduction in sequencing cost. Only 30K–50K reads per sample required v.s. 10M reads required by many shotgun metagenomics sequencing methods.
- High Coverage of Target Regions
Whole-genome coverage of the SARS-CoV-2 genome and selective coverage of influenza gene segments for sub-typing
- Ultra Sensitive Detection
Multiplex PCR based method for more sensitive detection of low viral copies.
- Fast, Streamlined Workflow
Generate sequencing-ready libraries in just 6 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 Respiratory Research Panel contains the CleanPlex Multiplex PCR Primers and CleanPlex Targeted Library Kit with RT components. CleanPlex Indexed PCR Primers for sample pooling and CleanMag® Magnetic Beads for bead purification and size selection are ordered separately to complete the workflow from input RNA to sequencing-ready NGS libraries.
