Paragon Genomics develops technology to streamline Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) targeted library preparation through a proprietary background removal solution. CleanPlex® technology, developed by genomic research experts and bioinformaticians, eliminates non-specific PCR products generated during multiplex PCR reactions. This workflow alleviates NGS bottlenecks, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed of targeted sequencing, which ensures only targets of interest are sequenced. Only relevant data is generated, translating into higher on-target rates, greater uniformity, money and time savings. With the high specificity of library synthesis, ultra-low sample input (100 pg to 10 ng) is enabled. Paragon Genomics offers a custom panel design service providing the ability to multiplex up to 20,000 amplicons per tube. CleanPlex® technology provides >98% uniformity and >97% specificity which is paramount to many fast-growing NGS segments such as genomics-guided breeding, systematic and phylogenetic mapping.
