Targeted Sequencing is an effective method for analyzing your selected gene(s) of interest by next generation sequencing. Whether you are interested in a few genes, or a few hundred genes, targeted resequencing panels offer high sensitivity and specificity, providing in-depth coverage, resulting in high-quality data.

With Custom Targeted Sequencing gene panels, you can discover point mutations, insertions/deletions (INDELs), copy number variations (CNVs), and gene rearrangements.


Targeted sequencing Gene Panels

Azenta provides a variety of targeted resequencing panels, either pre-made or custom, that can cover any genes of interest or cancer-implicated genes.

Blog | NGS, qPCR, or Sanger Sequencing: An Assay Selection Guide

This selection guide offers practical information about PCR + Sanger, qPCR, and NGS approaches to help you determine which assay best suits your project requirements, along with an interactive assay selection tool to aid your decision making.

Webinar| Non-Classical Sources of Tumour-Specific Antigen in Checkpoint Inhibitor Response

Developing immunotherapies for cancer can be difficult due to the variation of immune response from patient to patient. In this webinar, Dr. Litchfield from UCL Cancer Institute presents his team’s exploratory research using a multiomics approach to better understand the diversity of immune response to cancer and highlights their findings of an alternative source of a tumour-specific antigen in checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) response.

Webinar | Demystifying End-to-End DNA Sequencing Solutions

In this co-hosted webinar with Twist Bioscience, learn how researchers design custom panels to sequence deeply and efficiently into regions, genes, and organisms of interest, as well as gain a greater understanding on how targeted sequencing can be combined with the latest transcriptomics and proteomics tools to reveal even more insights.
