VariantPro Targeted Sequencing Service

LC Sciences offers a customized solution to high-throughput genome wide variant analysis. The VariantPro™ system is an innovative amplicon-based targeted sequencing technology for variant discovery and detection.

The VariantPro™ targeted sequencing system offers cost-effective, ultra-high resolution sequence analysis that enables accurate detection of rare variants. The flexibility and scalability of the technology means a custom assay can be tailored to fit a wide array of applications based on your specific needs.

This service is comprehensive – from sample to data, providing advanced technology and years of experience.

Our “Sample to Data” comprehensive service includes: primer designs, sample QC, sample preparation (target selection, sample bar-coding, molecular tagging, library amplification), high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatics analysis, and customer data report including:

  • Annotated SNP/indel list for targeted regions (dbsnp, snp type, refseq genes, etc.)
  • SNPs/indels in VCF format
  • Genotyping-ready results delivered using VarSifter
