RainDance’s target enrichment workflow is simple and will reduce hands-on time required to prepare samples for sequencing. It also reduces sequencing costs due to the high uniformity achieved with RainDance’s single-molecule, picodroplet for target enrichment.
Target Your Regions of Interest
Single-molecule picodroplet PCR yields better sequence uniformity and more complete design coverage
Each PCR droplet contains a uniform amount of genomic DNA, forward and reverse primers and PCR master mix
Results are highly uniform single-plex PCR products
Achieve greater than 99% design coverage for the target region of interest
Target regions of the genome that cannot be targeted by hybridization methods
It Pays with Total Time and Total Cost per Sample Savings
Multiple factors can be attributed to the total cost per sample for target enrichment and next-generation sequencing. While target enrichment costs represent the upfront expense, the right method will impact the following factors to deliver significant time and cost savings in the downstream sequencing and data analysis.
Proper primer design eliminates off-target and excess sequencing time and costs
More comprehensive coverage reduces additional Sanger sequencing validation
High specificity maximizes on-target sequencing throughput and reduces downstream sequencing costs
Uniform sequence coverage optimizes coverage and reduces overall costs
High on-target sequence reads reduce the amount of time needed to search against genomic databases
RainDance Technologies is pioneering digital biology and powering ground-breaking human health and life science research with its novel droplet-based technologies. The power, precision and simplicity of picodroplets enable researchers to answer complex questions with unprecedented sensitivity and quantitation.
