Capturing 76 distinct, highly polymorphic sites, the xGen Human ID Research Panel enriches a definitive set of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) selected to identify a unique individual from a population of over 5 million biological samples. The panel has been tested with DNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, cell-free DNA (cfDNA), and other sample types.
The xGen Human ID Research Panel comprises 229 individually synthesized xGen Lockdown® Probes, each quality controlled by ESI mass spectrometry. The panel is also functionally validated to ensure consistent and reliable results. The xGen Human ID Research Panel can be combined with any xGen Lockdown Panel or custom xGen Lockdown Probe set as a spike-in panel. Panels of various sizes have demonstrated no compromise in on-target performance and coverage uniformity with the addition of this panel. The Human ID Research Panel can also be run as a standalone* panel to confirm sample identity before performing larger, more expensive sequencing studies.
Use the xGen Human ID Research Panel to:
- Identify tumor/normal paired samples
- Track and manage individual samples during longitudinal studies
- Detect sample misidentification
xGen Lockdown Panels and Probes for diagnostic purposes are also available. Contact GMPinfo@idtdna.com for more information.
