The NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS Hybridization Panel (RUO) covers >90% of curated genes in ClinGen and National Human Genome Research Institute’s Clinical Genomic Database. It is one of the most comprehensive clinical research exome panels with ~6,000 genes, curated, designed and optimized over many years. The “Medical Exome Project” aimed at annotating and developing a targeted exome for clinical research applications was started over six years ago by researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Madhuri Hegde, who currently leads the PerkinElmer Genomics service lab, is one of the main contributors to the “Medical Exome Project” and is the architect behind the NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS Hybridization Panel.

NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS Hybridization Panel Design

The NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS panel is an all-inclusive kit containing:

  • DNA fragmentation reagents
  • Barcodes
  • Library preparation reagents
  • Sequence specific blockers
  • Hybrid capture reagents

The NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS panel (RUO) was meticulously designed and approved by a team comprising of American Board of Medical Genetics certified clinical molecular geneticists. Peer-reviewed publications on common genetic disorders were reviewed, and an enrichment system was designed to capture the single nucleotide variants (SNVs), small insertion and deletions (indels), and copy number variants (CNVs) associated with these disorders. Panel performance was evaluated and approved by PerkinElmer Genomics Laboratory, a CLIA and CAP certified high-throughput NGS facility.

Target Capture Automation – Reducing Human Error and Hands-On Time

Standardized and tested library prep automation is available which reduces human error, hands-on time, and/or increases a lab’s throughput. The NEXTFLEX® Core Exome NGS Hybridization panel is automated on multiple liquid handlers, including the Sciclone®, Zephyr®, and JANUS® G3 NGS workstations.

NGS Hybrid Panels Workflow

Target NEXTFLEX® Data Analysis Platform

The NEXTFLEX® Data Analysis platform is a user-friendly analysis software that can be used in conjunction with the NEXTFLEX® NGS Hybridization panels. A license for unlimited use of the software is available for purchase on an annual basis when coupled with on-going reagent purchases. The software is installed locally, and data is not uploaded to the cloud, keeping your important files in-house at all times. It offers an intuitive user interface for coverage statistics, SNV detection, as well as CNV detections across the range of panels available for an easy-to-use NGS variant calling experience for clinical research applications.

Simplify the analysis of your hybridization panel data with the NEXTFLEX® Analysis Software. Watch our instructional videos to learn how easy it is.
