Long-Read Amplicon Sequencing


Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) long-read sequencing offers complete, uniform, nonbiased coverage spanning long amplicons. Unlike short-read technologies, SMRT sequencing does not require the amplicon to be fragmented, and allows for phasing of variants across the entire amplicon.

GENEWIZ offers ultra-deep, contiguous amplicon sequencing for sequences up to 10,000 bp.  A single PacBio® read can discover a wide range of variants, from SNPs and small indels to large insertions and deletions. Furthermore, circular consensus sequences can be generated to obtain up to 99.999% single-molecule base calling accuracy.
