The Ion Torrent portfolio of B cell receptor (BCR) assays targets the immunoglobulin heavy (IGH) chain for next-generation sequencing (NGS).  Fast and affordable B cell repertoire analysis is achieved with little DNA or RNA input, using the sequencing accuracy and sensitivity of the Ion GeneStudio S5 series systems.

The complete Ion Torrent sample to analysis workflow enables deeper insights through targeted sequencing.

  • Study B cell development
  • Discover biomarkers that may potentially be predictive for future immunotherapies or helpful in the evaluation of vaccine efficacy research
  • Quantify somatic hypermutations for possible insights in malignant lymphocyte transformation

Oncomine BCR IGH LR Assay

The Ion Torrent Oncomine BCR IGH LR Assay uses the long-read sequencing capabilities of Ion Torrent technology to interrogate all complementarity determining regions (CDR1, CDR2, and CDR3) of the BCR IGH chain using low RNA sample input.

  • Repertoire analysis with flexible input requirements ranging from 10 ng to 2 µg
  • Assess clonal expansion and evaluate clonal evolution
  • Quantify somatic hypermutation for clonal lineage analysis; potential insights into B cell development and malignant transformation
  • Evaluate isotype abundance

Oncomine BCR IGH SR Assay

The Ion Torrent Oncomine BCR IGH-SR Assay allows you to interrogate the CDR3 region of the BCR IGH chain from human samples using either DNA or RNA as input. Targeting the diverse CDR3 region for B cells enables deeper insights in studying vaccine response, learning more about the cancer immunity cycle and research for evaluating measurable residual disease (MRD).

  • Repertoire analysis with either DNA or RNA sample input
  • Identify low frequency clones—detect B cell malignancies with 10-6 limit of detection
  • Study isotype representation with accurate sequencing data

Ion AmpliSeq Mouse BCR IGH SR Assay

Transform your mouse model studies with targeted sequencing of the CDR3 region of the BCR IGH. Using either DNA or RNA sample input, the accuracy and sensitivity of the panel paired with an Ion GeneStudio S5 system enables a complete workflow that allows you to explore your data in as little as two days.

  • Assess clonality state using either DNA or RNA sample input
  • Monitor disease state and vaccine efficacy in your mouse models 
  • Complete sample to insight workflow for fast and easy analysis
