New Application Note: A Smarter Way to Fish For Fusions

September 27, 2023

Read our latest application note and learn more about the technical background of our RNA-based fusion detection.

Sensitive detection of fusion transcripts is highly relevant in tumor diagnostics, with implications for therapy and prognosis. Targeted enrichment of RNA is a comprehensive and sensitive method for this task. The Twist Target Enrichment technology is a robust workflow that allows us to integrate RNA fusion detection into automated laboratory processes and sequence samples alongside exomes without the need for a different library preparation process or separate sequencing runs. Together with our automated data analysis, we can accurately analyze patient samples to detect more than 80 therapeutically actionable fusion variants in a high-throughput manner, allowing us to report clinically actionable results and support treatment decisions.
