Advanta CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay

Save time and resources through an automated and scalable targeted NGS workflow

Save time: Achieve consistent results while reducing hands-on time through workflow automation.

Scalable: Sequence dozens to hundreds of barcoded samples in a single run at high read depth.

Cost-effective: Conserve precious reagents by performing reactions at nanoliter scale using microfluidics technology.

Coverage: Target CF-causing variants identified by CFTR2**, including SNPs and large deletions.

The Advanta™ CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay provides a highly efficient and scalable next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation workflow on the automated Juno™ system. Designed for target enrichment of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) variants** from each of the 27 exons and select intronic regions, high-quality NGS-ready barcoded libraries can easily be generated with significantly less hands-on time.

Incorporating Fluidigm microfluidics technology reduces reactions to nanoliter volumes, decreasing your cost per sample. Scalability is simplified, enabling you to generate 48 to 192 samples per run and up to 1,536 sample libraries per week starting with 5–120 ng of genomic DNA derived from blood, saliva or buccal swab. With the flexibility to add assays over time, the Advanta CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay is an ideal solution for molecular profiling.

A scalable library prep workflow

Achieve greater operational efficiency and time savings by running a second integrated fluidic circuit (IFC) on Juno overnight and processing the amplified and barcoded product harvested from multiple Juno runs simultaneously.

The Juno Advantage

The Advanta CFTR NGS Library Prep Assay is optimized to run on the Juno system, which utilizes IFCs (Figure 2) to precisely combine multiple reactions at nanoliter volumes. Enabling scalability of both sample throughput and content, the Juno automated library preparation workflow delivers cost-effective performance you can trust with minimal hands-on time.
