Twist Biosciences launches sample identification kit for NGS workflows

Dna Pcr Ngs

Twist Bioscience on Tuesday announced the launch of its Twist Human Sample ID Kit that enables whole blood samples or purified genomic DNA to be tracked and identified throughout the lab workflow.

The kit, which prepares sequence-ready genotyping libraries, is designed to integrate with the firm's next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows, Twist said, adding that the kit is specifically designed to be used in combination with the Twist Exome 2.0 panel and custom panels.

The workflow requires a single PCR reaction, with 2 µL of whole blood (or 10 ng of purified DNA), followed by standard Twist NGS library preparation, it said.

The Twist Human Sample ID Kit enables labs to independently verify the correct results are attributed to the right sample with as little as five minutes of extra hands-on time, the firm added.
