Complete BRCA1 and BRCA2 Coverage for Illumina® Sequencing

The NEXTFLEX® BRCA1 & BRCA2 XP Amplicon Panel allows you to quickly target and sequence all coding exons of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 loci. This kit contains primer pairs and reagents needed to amplify the coding regions of BRCA1 and BRCA2 from DNA isolated from fresh and frozen material, and prepare libraries for Illumina® sequencing.

The NEXTFLEX® BRCA1 & BRCA2 XP Amplicon Panel has the capability of multiplexing up to 88 samples at 100x coverage for the detection of germline mutations and up to 4 samples at 2000x coverage for the detection of somatic mutations on a single Illumina® 2×300 Miseq® lane.

A Complete Solution for Targeted BRCA1 and BRCA2 Sequencing

The NEXTFLEX® BRCA1 & BRCA2 XP Amplicon Panel is a complete, validated solution that targets all coding exons in BRCA1 and BRCA2 loci using 132 PCR primer pairs. This kit requires only 20 ng of DNA from fresh or frozen samples. This kit is not designed for use with DNA isolated from FFPE or cfDNA samples. The convenient predesigned panel allows researchers to focus on data generation and analysis, not on labor-intensive primer design and target selection. This kit can be easily automated on liquid handlers, further simplifying workflow.
