Multiplicom provides your laboratory with a complete range of molecular diagnostics solutions, which guide you towards better and more reliable results. One part of our solutions are customer and quality support tools. These tools help you to set up our tests and improve your results. In order to help you calculate the number of samples per sequencing run and improve your results, we have updated our Sequencing Calculator as of 8 May 2017.
The Sequencing Calculator is a free online tool on our website that enables you to efficiently plan your sequencing runs and to calculate the number of samples per run of different MASTR (Plus) assays in a single run. The report provides you with the required volume per amplicon pool (µl).
From now on, the calculator supports the most current Illumina (MiSeq®, MiniSeq® and NextSeq®) and Thermo Fisher Scientific (Ion PGM™ and Ion S5™) sequencers. We have also added new Multiplicom assays to the calculator and made the use of your NGS data for CNV analysis more visible, all to provide you with a complete overview of possibilities.
For our somatic assays (Tumor), Illumina flow cells for 300 cycles have been added. Furthermore, we have minimized the recommended minimal coverage for Illumina sequencing (for SNV: from 50 to 20 reads per variant allele; for CNV: from 300 to 200 reads per amplicon). Taken together, these updates make your run more efficient and affordable.
