The multiplex RT-PCR-based-, followed by next-generation sequencing (NGS), method applied in the Driver-Map Expression Profiling Service addresses the limitations in specificity, reproducibility and sensitivity of other genome-wide expression profiling approaches such as RNA-Seq and microarray platforms.
"The advanced methods now available to researchers through the Driver-Map Genome-Wide service will enable expression profiling of even the most complex samples such as those from xenografts, whole blood and tissue biopsies. We look forward to enabling a more efficient path to discovery of novel diagnostics and therapeutic agents for a wide variety of disease areas," said Alex Chenchik, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Cellecta.
The highly reproducible Driver-Mapô assay employs a robust, single-test-tube protocol which features unique improvements that are particularly suitable to complex applications such as large-scale biomarker discovery, tumor microenvironment characterization, and others which require minimal amounts of RNA sample. These improvements include:
The basic service includes extensive sample RNA quality control, the Driver-Mapô assay, next-generation sequencing to determine the relative number of transcripts of each gene, and comprehensive analysisó resulting in multiplex data that is annotated, normalized, with basic statistical analysis presented in the final report.
Driver-Mapô Human Genome-Wide Expression Profiling Service is available now. For more information, please visit www.driver-map.com
