Qiagen NV Announces Launch of 14 New GeneRead DNAseq V2 Gene Panels

Qiagen NV announced the launch of 14 new GeneRead(TM) DNAseq V2 gene panels targeting an extensive range of cancer-related genes or gene regions. Gene panels are an integral part of many next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows. They are used to enrich genes of interest in a sample prior to sequencing runs and as such can be seen as the core assay in the workflow. QIAGEN's new GeneRead panels are customizable to include other genes or gene regions of clinical or biological interest and are compatible with any NGS sequencer. They are part of QIAGEN's sample-to-library workflows, which are helping to drive the growing use of NGS in clinical applications. The 14 new GeneRead DNAseq V2 panels cover an extensive range of cancer-related genes and gene regions, including "focused" panels each targeting 8-25 genes, "disease-specific" panels for 40-50 genes, and "comprehensive" panels for as many as 160 genes. The content of the panels has been developed based on the new recommendations from relevant medical and scientific literature. The gene panels are integrated with QIAGEN's bioinformatics software, Ingenuity(R) Variant Analysis(TM), an extensive, curated database of gene variants and clinical data that enables interpretation of NGS results and delivers valuable insights from sequencing data. Laboratories also can customize GeneRead panels for specific disease pathways or research needs by tapping into QIAGEN's deep molecular content portfolio through GeneGlobe, an online portal covering more than 60,000 annotated molecular assays. QIAGEN has been collaborating with selected customers in the development of the new gene panels to validate product performance in a wide range of applications, including translational research and clinical applications. QIAGEN's GeneRead technology provides the most cost-effective, time-efficient approach for target enrichment in preparation for NGS runs on any sequencer. Unlike other approaches for sequencers, GeneRead panels use as little as 10 nanograms of starting DNA material per pool. They are compatible with FFPE samples and do not require any specialized instruments. The proprietary algorithms and chemistry provide coverage (>96% of coding regions), specificity (>90% of reads on target) and uniformity (>90% of bases are covered by at least 20% of the mean coverage depth) for the targeted DNA sequencing. In addition to their quality advantages, QIAGEN gene panels require only three hours to enrich for targets and provide for a substantially reduced time to go from isolated DNA sample to sequencing-ready libraries. QIAGEN provides a full range of sample technologies, assay panels and library preparation products which generate substantial revenue and solve important NGS needs in clinical and clinical research applications in particular. QIAGEN also is developing the benchtop GeneReader(TM) NGS platform for the same applications. Combined with QIAGEN's existing NGS portfolio, GeneReader is designed to provide a seamless automated workflow from biological sample, through DNA preparation, enrichment, library preparation, sequencing, data analysis and interpretation, to deliver valuable insights into diseases.

Annual General Meeting

QIAGEN Receives FDA Approval of artus(R) CMV RGQ MDx Kit to Monitor Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Viral Load in Organ Transplant Patients

Qiagen NV announced that its artus(R) CMV RGQ MDx Kit for human cytomegalovirus (CMV) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under a full premarket approval (PMA). The test is the only FDA-approved PCR-based assay optimized for low- to mid-throughput testing of CMV. With a turn-around time of approximately three hours, the assay provides faster results than other PMA approved tests. artus CMV RGQ MDx runs on QIAGEN's Rotor-Gene Q MDx real-time PCR platform, which was cleared by the FDA in 2012 and is a member of the QIAsymphony modular family of automated instruments. The CE-marking of artus(R) GBS QS-RGQ Kit for detection of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) represents the most recent addition to QIAGEN's growing QIAsymphony test menu. The test was developed in partnership with Intelligent MDx. For healthcare-associated infections, QIAGEN already offers the CE-marked artus VanR QS-RGQ Kit for vancomycin-resistant bacteria, the artus C. difficile QS-RGQ Kit and the artus MRSA/SA QS-RGQ Kit for detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections (MRSA).
