NOTE: The PG-Seq™ Rapid kit will be available for legacy customers until December 31, 2022. This kit is being replaced by the PG-Seq Rapid kit v2.

PG-Seq™ Rapid Kit for Fast PGT-A Preparation

for Illumina® & Thermo Fisher® Ion Torrent™ Instruments

Learn about the new PG-Seq Rapid kit v2 which incorporates a streamlined PGT-A preparation enabling preimplantation genetic testing using picogram quantities of DNA from an embryo biopsy.

Introducing a new, high-speed sample preparation kit for Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A). The PG-Seq™ Rapid kit accurately detects whole chromosome aneuploidy along with structural rearrangements such as unbalanced translocations and segmental errors in only 3 hours using an efficient, streamlined workflow.

It’s as simple as lyse, whole genome amplify, add indexes and adapters for your choice of sequencing platform with PCR, clean up, quantify, pool, and sequence. Analysis is performed using the PerkinElmer PG-Find™ software. Test resolution is equivalent to the PG-Seq™ kit 2.0, with the ability to detect down to 7 Mb deletions and duplications from up to 48 samples on the Illumina® MiSeq® instrument.
