What is Amplicon Sequencing?
Definition: An amplicon is one or more copies of a genetic fragment or target sequence as a product of natural or artificial amplification. Amplicon sequencing is a targeted method of analysis of these amplicons often carried out using Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or Next-generation sequencing.
Below is a summary of genes covered by the TruSeq Amplicon panel, plus our recommendations for which Horizon DIscovery reference standard is most suitable for each panel (based on gene coverage).
Recommended Reference Standards:
Quantitative Multiplex (>16 genes covered)
Tru-Q (>21 genes covered)
