Learn more about our Sample Prep and NIPT products:

SeqCap® EZ Inherited Disease Panel (IDP) design*– Roche is making it simple to access pre designed NGS panels from researchers around the world. An example is our new IDP design covering 4100 genes and regions associated with inherited diseases. It requires  just 100 ng of  gDNA and yields >98% coverage at 20x depth with only 15M reads
KAPA RNA HyperPrep Kits* – Roche is bringing more streamlined solutions that reduce hands-on and overall time for NGS library construction.  Our new KAPA RNA HyperPrep Kit  enables single-day library construction, inclusive of rRNA depletion  and has high success rates with lower input and degraded samples, such as FFPE
NEW! KAPA Dual-Indexed Adapters*, with Illumina TruSeq HT design, are ready to use, automation friendly, QC tested and provide a complete library preparation solution

*For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Harmony® IVD Kit CE*– the global leading NIPT brand1 with over one million tests performed worldwide – for testing for trisomies 21, 18, 13, fetal sex, monosomy X and  sex chromosome aneuploidies
Offerings for laboratories - AcfS system with Harmony IVD Kit CE*, CLIA Test Send Out and Send Out services provided by Roche partners

*Available outside of the US

  1. More than 1,000,000 Harmony prenatal tests performed and available in more than 100 countries and territories worldwide. Data on file.

Harmony Prental Test is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) based on cell-free DNA analysis and is considered a prenatal screening test, not a diagnostic test. Harmony Prenatal Test does not screen for potential chromosomal or genetic conditions other than those expressly identified in this document. Before making any treatment decisions, all women should discuss their results with their healthcare provider, who can recommend confirmatory, diagnostic testing where appropriate. The Ariosa cell-free DNA System (AcfS) is only available outside of the US. AcfS is designed for use with DANSR, FORTE, and the Harmony Kit. The Harmony IVD Kit is CE Marked under the IVD Directive 98/79/EC. This material is intended for regions outside of the United States which recognize the CE Mark.
