ArcherDX reagents are suitable for tissue, FFPE, liquid biopsy detection. The products include solid tumor, blood cancer… and other cancer analysis kits. FCB professional team assists customers in completing the establishment of the NGS analysis system.

Clinical Oncology Research

Invitae-ArcherDX provides several kits for complex gene mutation detection. It uses Molecular Barcode technology and the Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) technology for nucleic acid detection, which can eliminate sequencing errors, that lead to accurate quantification, and more complex gene mutants detection. It is a great tool for cancer companion diagnostic (CDx). ArcherDX provides unparalleled sensitivity, greatly improving the detection rate of unknown mutations. With the characteristics of flexible customized design, the most suitable detection plan can be designed for different cancers according to the needs of clinical detection. In addition, freeze-dried reagents greatly reduce human operation errors, and provide the most accurate, customized and easy-to-operate NGS library kits.

Advantages in the field of cancer precision medicine:

  • Highly sensitive, high-precision quantitative analysis
  • Freeze-dried reagents reduce the error rate of operation
  • Can detect unknown complex mutations
  • FusionPlex products are suitable for both Illumina and Ion Torrent systems
  • Powerful software that can provide NGS data analysis

Principles of AMP technology

ArcherDX’s exclusive patented Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP™) chemistry is to fragment the sample DNA and then ligase the molecular barcode and the universal primer site at the beginning of the experiment, and this greatly reduced bias generated by PCR amplification.
Next, design two PCR primer sequences (GSP1 and GSP2) on the targeted kinase side, and use the universal primer site to perform nested PCR on the other side. AMP technology not only increase the specificity of the PCR amplification, but also catch the unknown end (universal primer end) of the gene fusion. It’s a great tool to find more unpublished complex gene mutations in the cancer samples.
