Topic 1:  Quantification and Validation of Mutations and Methylation by Automated Pyrosequencing® platform

Pyrosequencing® has been applied to quantify mutations, SNP and methylations, and serves as a tool to validate next-generation sequencing and microarray results. PyroMark Q48 Autoprep provides the world first automated solutions on Pyrosequencing® by integrating template preparation into the pyrosequencing protocol.


Topic 2:    Sample Quality Control for NGS applications

In this part of seminar, two platforms for sample QC at multiple checkpoints of NGS workflow will be introduced:

(1)        QIAxcel Advanced - an automated and high-throughput platform for DNA fragment

and RNA analysis

(2)  QIAxpert - assess sample quality by spectral content profiling



On-site demonstration for the instruments will be offered after the seminar.
