Preparation for Sequencing

At our Cologne site Targos offers mutational analysis by using the scientific expertise of Prof. Reinhard Büttner’s team of pathologists, scientists and laboratory staff.
Mutational analysis methodology includes high resolution melting, Sanger sequencing and parallel deep sequencing. The parallel deep sequencing unit enables the mutational analysis of a large panel of biomarkers from a minimum DNA amount using the MiSeq platform (Ilumina, San Diego, USA).

Example of mutation analysis include the identification of BRAF mutations and other customized assays.
