Discontinued SeqCap Portfolio

NimbleDesign Software has been discontinued. Our new KAPA Target Enrichment Portfolio is now available and contains our new KAPA HyperExome, as well as our new custom probes, KAPA HyperChoice and KAPA HyperExplore. For additional questions, please contact your regional sales representative.



The NimbleDesign® free online tool enables you to quickly and easily design custom SeqCap® EZ Prime Choice or HEAT-Seq® Choice Designs. The NimbleDesign software uses our empirically optimized probe database and design process, derived from years of design experience, for proven probe selection. This web-based application provides you 24/7 access with easy setup in designing your probe sets for human and non-human research applications.
