The OmniFusion RNA Lung Cancer Kit for known and novel fusion detection and research via amplicon-based target enrichment for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) on Illumina Sequencing platforms
The OmniFusion RNA Lung Cancer Kit for next generation sequencing enables detection more than 530 known and unknown fusions associated with non-small cell lung cancer. In contrast to the AccuFusion® workflow, the OmniFusion workflow allows detection of novel fusion partners and and splicing variants. Compared to other methods such as qPCR, FISH, or Sanger sequencing, Paragon Genomics targeted fusion sequencing method allows robust multiplexed detection of variants using minimum sample input and a simple workflow (Figure 1).
The OmniFusion single-primer amplification technology uses template switching technology to add an universal sequence to the 5’ ends of RNA fragments. Combined with expertly designed targeted 3’ primers specific to acceptor genes, the process eliminates the constraint of template length, and allows higher sensitivity even with damaged RNA fragments, such as FFPE RNA. The single sided amplification method enables the detection of any mutations on the RNA fragments, including novel ones.
