Breakout Session

Short Talk: KAPA EvoPlus Kits: Bringing new levels of convenience, performance, and scalability to enzymatic DNA fragmentation for NGS library preparation

Date:          Tuesday, March 29th, 2022 
Time:         1:00 PM – 2:00 PM (PST)
Duration:   10-minute presentation
Session:    Implementing spatial transcriptomics in a core setting; Session sponsored by Roche

NGS library preparation employing enzymatic fragmentation is favored for the sample preservation, scalability, and workflow efficiencies that the method affords; however, these benefits often come at the cost of data quality. Read mapping errors resulting from the introduction of sequencing artifacts and inhibited fragmentation jeopardize data accuracy, coverage, and uniformity. While mechanical shearing is favored for its data quality, this method is complex, challenging to scale, and leads to greater sample loss. This presentation will introduce KAPA EvoPlus Kits, a novel enzymatic fragmentation library preparation method that delivers unparalleled convenience with performance that rivals gold-standard mechanical methods.

NEW KAPA HyperPETE Target Enrichment Portfolio for NGS

This new Primer Extension Target Enrichment Technology combines the performance of hybrid capture with the simplicity and short turnaround time of amplicon-based workflows. KAPA HyperPETE is optimized to detect all major somatic variants in cfDNA, FFPE, and RNA samples, including SNVs, short indels, CNVs, MSI, and fusion transcripts (novel and known).

  • Interrogate difficult regions by leveraging Roche’s expertise in panel content and design
  • Save valuable time and resources with single-day, automatable workflows
  • Increase analysis efficiency with focused, high-uniformity panel design and no need for primer trimming
  • Preserve precious samples and improve sensitivity by avoiding the need to split panels
