The Ion Torrent Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay consists of three pools of AmpliSeq oligonucleotide primers and associated reagents to generate amplicon libraries for next-generation sequencing (NGS) on Ion Torrent platforms. The assay is designed to provide sensitive and comprehensive sample amplification of relevant DNA mutations and fusion transcripts associated with myeloid disorders in a single NGS run. The panel is comprised of 40 key DNA genes and a broad fusion panel of 29 driver genes to cover the most relevant targets in major myeloid disorders: acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myeloid dysplastic syndrome (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML).
This version of the assay is for automated Ion Torrent Chef library preparation. For manual library preparation, please see Cat. No. A36940.
• Simple, robust workflow that encompasses mutations and fusions in two DNA and one RNA pool in a single NGS run
• Excellent coverage of challenging targets such as CEBPA and FLT3-ITDs
• Multiplex up to four samples on a single Ion 318 chip or twelve on an Ion 530 chip
• Compatible with as little as 10 ng/pool input DNA or RNA per library from blood or bone marrow samples
• Validated detection of somatic variants down to 5% allele frequency
• Simple and fast workflow produces targeted libraries in 3.5 hours typically
• For use on the Ion PGM and Ion S5 systems with manual or automated library preparation
• Compatible with the Oncomine Knowledgebase Reporter for variant annotation
The Oncomine Myeloid Research Assay is a comprehensive, targeted NGS assay designed to assist hematologists in the understanding of myeloid cancer. The assay is a complete kit facilitating the amplification of multiple gene targets from blood or bone marrow samples with as little as 10 ng of input DNA or RNA per pool. Leveraging the power of Ion AmpliSeq technology, this highly multiplexed NGS assay enables the generation of results from multiple samples in a single run. Designed for use on either the Ion PGM or Ion S5 sequencing systems, results are delivered in days rather than weeks. The assay is aligned with bioinformatics workflows within Torrent Suite and Ion Reporter analysis software that utilize optimized variant-calling parameters for SNV, InDel, and FLT3 large internal tandem duplication (ITD) detection. Variants can be annotated in the Oncomine Knowledgebase Reporter to generate a sample-specific report. Samples can be processed quickly and easily, and variants detected and identified confidently.
