Development and Characterization of the NGS Multi-Cancer Panel plus CNV Detection; A Single-Tube, Multiplex-PCR Based NGS Assay with 309 Tiled Amplicons

  • SLIMamp allows multiplex-PCR of tiled amplicons in a single tube, which enables targeting of large exons for NGS analysis with a streamlined process. CNVs have a high prevalence in the pathogenesis of cancer and their characterization is important to acquire a more comprehensive picture of the mutations present in a patient sample. Pillar developed a proprietary CNV algorithm and combined it with SLIMamp to develop an integrated multi-cancer plus CNV detection NGS panel which identifies CNVs in ERBB2, EGFR, MET, and MYC.

  • SLIMamp allows multiplex-PCR of tiled amplicons in a single tube, which enables targeting of large exons for NGS analysis with a streamlined process. This technology was previously demonstrated to be a sensitive and robust NGS library prep method for Illumina instruments. To benefit the largest number of patients and researchers, SLIMamp library prep was made compatible with multiple sequencing platforms that are common worldwide including the MGISEQ.
