Product News: Seek Flexibility for your Molecular Laboratory

04 Dec 2013

Bring the benefits of next-generation sequencing (NGS) into the clinical lab with the first and only FDA-cleared NGS system for in vitro diagnostic use.

Illumina is the leading provider of accurate, reliable NGS solutions. Now clinical laboratories can take advantage of powerful NGS technology with the MiSeqDx system.

The MiSeqDx instrument is the first and only FDA-cleared in vitro diagnostic (IVD) next-generation sequencing system. Designed specifically for the clinical laboratory environment, the MiSeqDx instrument offers a small footprint, an easy-to-follow workflow, and data output tailored to the needs of clinical labs. In addition, the integrated software enables sample tracking, user traceability, and results interpretation*. Taking advantage of proven Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry, the MiSeqDx instrument provides accurate, reliable screening, and diagnostic testing.

Currently, three ready-to-use kits and assays are available for use on the MiSeqDx system:

• MiSeqDx Universal Kit
     o Develop your own diagnostic tests.

• MiSeqDx Cystic Fibrosis 139-Variant Assay
     o The largest panel of clinically relevant and functionally validated variants for cystic fibrosis testing

• MiSeqDx Cystic Fibrosis Clinical Sequencing Assay
     o An NGS test providing a comprehensive view of the CFTR gene.

The MiSeqDx instrument provides you maximum flexibility in your clinical lab.
