Every sample is precious and obtaining the most relevant information, while optimizing your sequencing resources, requires the best sample preparation methods.
As sequencing technologies become more accessible and affordable, Roche is here to support your ambition for finding answers.
Our continually evolving portfolio features innovative tools for a wide range of applications to consistently ensure quality and performance so you can sequence less and discover more.
Together, we can push the boundaries of clinical discovery.
Roche Sequencing Solutions is committed to providing best-in-class technologies with intuitive and integrated workflows, allowing you to:
Offer relevant medical content & design expertise
Unlock the potential of every sample
Enhance sequencing efficiency
We will continue to be your trusted partner in NGS sample prep, delivering innovative products that will lead to personalized healthcare for patients in the future.
The SeqCap product line played an important role in countless experiments over the years. As today’s research demands change, so will our offering.
Our latest sample prep solution is coming by the end of the year, and will feature a new exome and custom design web tool that will provide you with:
Expert designer support
Higher target coverage
Better capture uniformity
Lower duplicate rates
Working together, we can achieve the ultimate goal:
Doing now what patients need next.
No, we are committed to the Target Enrichment market. As pioneers in Target Enrichment dating back to 2007, we have continually evolved our technology. This is yet another exciting step forward in the evolution of Roche Sample Prep Solutions.
At Roche Sequencing, we constantly strive to respond to our customers’ ever-changing needs. In order to better serve those needs, we decided to refresh the technology that serves as a vital component to our end-to-end solution (Sample In – Sequencing-Ready). Therefore, it ultimately meant that we needed to transition to a new technology which moves away from the Maskless Array Synthesis manufacturing method of SeqCap.
We will actively support the SeqCap (EZ, Epi, RNA) and HEAT-Seq technology until the end of 2021. The SeqCap and HEAT-Seq probes have a shelf life of 2 years post manufacturing. The last manufacturing round for the current product offerings is the end of 2019, so we will actively support (including reagents) until the end of 2021.
The new technology still utilizes biotinylated DNA probes for in-solution hybridization-based Target Enrichment.
We are planning to launch the new Target Enrichment offering for Exome and Custom in late 2019. Further details on specific dates will be made available closer to the launch.
We will support current SeqCap EZ custom design lift-over to designs based on the new technology both through the upgraded online design tool (successor of NimbleDesign) and our expert design team. The same design algorithm that allowed you to access your desired regions is going to serve as a key foundation for the new Target Enrichment offering from Roche Sequencing Solutions.
The last order date for SeqCap and HEAT-Seq custom (or Design Share) probe designs is November 1st, 2019 (tentative). RSS Madison will cease probe pool production by December 31st, 2019. It is not possible to hold stock of custom or Design Share designs at RSS Madison or other RSS sites since Custom and Design Share designs are made-to-order. Hence, all custom design probes manufactured from 2020 onwards will be using the new TE manufacturing process.
The last order date for SeqCap and HEAT-Seq catalog probe designs is June 28th, 2020 as those designs will be kept on stock at the warehouses and in quantities based on final forecasts provided by June 2019.
The last order date for HyperCap kits is the end of 2020. With a shelf life of 12 months, these reagents will support SeqCap and HEAT-Seq probes until the end of 2021 as those probes have 24-month shelf life.
