Target Enrichment

Enriching the Power of Sequencing


Roche Pioneers NGS Target Enrichment

Target enrichment allows scientists to focus sequencing resources by selectively working from only the DNA of interest from a sample. This leads to reduced costs and simplified analysis, but it also can enable scientists to address more challenging genetic questions through increased sequencing depth.

As the pioneer in hybridization-based target enrichment, Roche Sequencing continues to expand its best-in-class offerings to address new technologies, new applications and the changing needs of scientists.
