Sample Prep Solutions

Unlock the potential of every sample

The NGS workflow is a multi-step process consisting of three main stages, namely sample preparation, sequencing, and data analysis/reporting. As the first step in this continuum, sample prep holds the key to unlocking the potential of every sample. Because NGS samples are precious, the best sample prep solutions are needed to preserve sample integrity and convert nucleic acids into sequenceable molecules with minimal loss and bias.

Roche Sample Prep Solutions, encompass all the steps required to convert a sample to a sequencing-ready library. From sample collection to library quantification, we offer integrated workflow solutions for different sample types and sequencing applications that are proven, complete and simple.

Roche Sample Prep Solutions bring together a suite of high-quality products that have served the life sciences, translational and clinical research community for over a decade. Qualified, complete workflow solutions for a wide range of sample types and NGS applications give you greater peace of mind. Streamlining every step of the process, from pipetting to purchasing, improves success rates and frees up your time and resources to do better science.

Workflow Integration

MagNA Pure 24 and 96 Nucleic Acid Extraction Systems

MagNA Pure 24 and 96 Systems are built on 20 years of legacy in the automated nucleic acid extraction market. Systems are GMP-manufactured and IVD-compliant. As part of our efforts to provide integrated solutions across the entire NGS sample prep workflow, selected MagNA Pure methods are being optimized for DNA yield and quality, and qualified in direct and targeted sequencing applications employing blood, plasma, fresh/frozen and FFPE tissue samples.

HyperCap Workflow and Products

SeqCap target enrichment technology is now fully integrated with KAPA HyperPrep and KAPA HyperPlus library preparation kits; to provide flexible, high-performance and streamlined protocols for hybridization-based targeted sequencing from a wide range of inputs and sample types. Building on existing improvements to reduce user intervention and enable end-to-end automation, the HyperCap Workflow 2.0 makes hybridization setup really easy through the introduction of Roche Universal Blocking Oligos (UBOs). Higher throughput is supported with KAPA Dual-Indexed Adapters, and reagent kits have been optimized to simplify pricing and ordering for both pre- and post-capture multiplexing strategies.
