Pan-Cancer NGS Panel
The only liquid biopsy panel to detect 0.1% VAF requiring only 1 million NGS reads
The Pan-Cancer NGS Panel enables highly sensitive variant detection and quantitation across hundreds of loci in 61 genes. Utilizing BDA technology and next-generation sequencing, the Pan-Cancer panel significantly improves the limit of detection (≥0.1% VAF) while reducing the number of reads required. The panel is compatible with several sample types, including cell-free DNA, tumor sections, and PBMC DNA.
- Detect SNVs and indels down to 0.1% VAF
- Requires only 1 million NGS reads per sample
- Compatible with tumor-derived or cell-free DNA
- Simple and user-friendly workflow and bioinformatics

KMT2A-rearranged Heme NGS Panel
Detection of low-frequency KMT2A gene fusions without prior knowledge of exact fusion partners and breakpoints.
The KMT2A-rearranged (KMT2Ar) Heme NGS panel enables highly sensitive detection of known and novel KMT2A rearrangements down to 0.05% tumor fraction. Using FusionBDA NGS technology to selectively enrich KMT2A fusion transcripts, the KMT2Ar panel enables identification of low-frequency gene fusions while minimizing sequencing requirements.
- Ultrasensitive detection of known and novel fusion partner genes
- Agnostic detection of KMT2Ar with various fusion partnersRNA input
BDA qPCR Assays
Ultrasensitive Mutation Detection using qPCR
Using BDA with qPCR allows for ultrasensitive multiplexed detection of mutations in as little as two hours. NuProbe has created proof of concept assays for effective variant enrichment and simultaneous profiling of single nucleotide variants or indels without the need for post-qPCR melting curves or additional sequencing.
