Additional Information
The Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel provides highly multiplexed target selection of genes implicated in cancer research. Encompassing over 50% of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Cancer Gene Census, this is the most comprehensive cancer gene panel available. With all-exon coverage of 409 genes, the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel delivers fast, FFPE-compatible, target selection for a broad survey of key genes for semiconductor sequencing. View the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel list of target genes (PDF).

The Ion AmpliSeq™ technology allows ultra-high multiplex PCR combined with targeted sequencing library construction in just 16 hours for over 400 genes. Utilizing only 10 ng of input DNA per primer pool for a total of 40 ng of input DNA, analysis of restricted samples like FFPE samples is possible. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel is optimized for library construction with the Ion AmpliSeq™ Library Kit 2.0. Libraries are then ready for template preparation on the Ion OneTouch™ System and sequencing on the Ion PGM™ Sequencer. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel is not compatible with Ion Ampliseq™ 2.0 Beta Kits.

Features and Benefits:

• Broad survey of 409 key genes in a simple PCR reaction, no additional capital equipment required
• Unmatched plexy of 16,000 primer pairs in only four pools with Ion AmpliSeq™ technology
• Low DNA input of only 40 ng DNA and short amplicons enable FFPE samples and needle biopsies
• Start comprehensive genomic studies quickly with pre-designed primer pools
• Simplify analysis and annotation of variants with Ion Reporter™ software

Comprehensive Gene Content Including Genes from Hotspot Panel
Ion Torrent has designed the most extensive cancer panel available for sequencing with Ion PGM™ and, soon, Ion Proton™ Sequencers. Working with key cancer researchers and reviewing literature and databases, the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel was designed to target all exons of key tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes most frequently cited and most frequently mutated. Strategically designed to interrogate CDS and splice variants across multiple gene families simultaneously, pathway-based gene selection profiles mutational spectrum in cancer driver genes and drug targets, along with signaling cascades, apoptosis, DNA repair, transcription regulators, inflammatory response, and growth factor genes in a single assay. Additionally, all genes from the focused Ion AmpliSeq™ Cancer Panel are included in the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel providing corresponding complementary data.

Unmatched Level of Multiplex PCR
The Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel is comprised of four primer pools totaling almost 16,000 primer pairs covering 409 genes-that's approximately 4,000 primer pairs in each pool! Used in conjunction with the Ion AmpliSeq™ Library Kit 2.0, the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel maintains high uniformity and specificity at this high plexy, advancing multiplex PCR to new levels.

Over 400 Genes, Only 40 ng DNA Required
While other target selection methods typically require micrograms of DNA input, the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel uses only 40 ng DNA. This breakthrough in low DNA input requirement enables the interrogation of restricted samples like formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples (FFPE) and fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNAB). Additionally, shorter amplicon design (average 155 bp) allows for compatibility with degraded samples.

Simplified Target Selection Without Primer Design
With pre-designed primers in the Ion AmpliSeq™ Comprehensive Cancer Panel, researchers can bypass gene selection, primer design, and optimization, and advance straight to generating results for a broad survey of hundreds of genes in key research samples. To further focus your cancer research, you may choose to conduct in-depth somatic variant analysis on a subset of genes or specific cancer subtype. Using Ion AmpliSeq™ Designer, researchers can simply add or subtract genes from this panel to create your own custom panel. The flexibility and scalability of Ion AmpliSeq™ Solutions spans across the Ion AmpliSeq™ Ready-to-use Panels and Ion AmpliSeq™ Custom Panels.
