Agilent HaloPlex panels are predefined designs which focus on targeted gene sets for specific applications. Agilent offers two catalog HaloPlex panels, the Cancer Research Panel and the Cardiomyopathy panel.
The HaloPlex Cardiomyopathy (catalog) is a next generation sequencing target enrichment
panel designed specifically for inherited forms of cardiomyopathy. Following a careful review
of cardiomyopathy publications as well as information available from GeneReviews, an NIH
online resource, 34 genes known to be associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated
cardiomyopathy, and arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy have been included. As
shown in the table below, there is substantial overlap in some genes associated with different
cardiomyopathy types, and the ability to sequence all of the genes simultaneously enables
laboratories to create a comprehensive cardiomyopathy profile for clinical research samples
in one efficient, cost effective application.
