NGS workshop for pathologists


The Oslo Genomics Core Facility in collboration with Illumina, has organised ahands-on workshop for pathologists at Oslo Univeristy Hospital.

The TruSight Tumor sequencing panel provides amplicon-based library preparation assay targeting 26 genes frequently mutated in solid tumours. The workshop provided theoretical and hands-on work with the TruSight Tumor protocol, from sample quality control, librrayt preparation, starting a run on the MiSeq instrument and analysing the datareagents, DNA QC, sample indices and oligos targeting identified regions of interest. The TruSight Tumor has been implemented for FFPE material.

The TruSight Tumor Workshop was held between the 10th and 13th of March at the Genomics Core Facility at Oslo University Hospital. The workshop provided theoretical and hands-on experience with the TruSight Tumor protocol, from sample quality control, librrayt preparation, starting a run on the MiSeq instrument and analysing the data. The workshop included accompanying presentations that provide information about Illumina sequencing technology, the TruSight Tumor kit and our solutions in the cancer field.

The Genomics Core Facility has recently installed a NanoString nCounter system. The nCounter utilizes a novel digital barcode technology for direct multiplexed measurement of analytes and offers high levels of precision and sensitivity. This technology allows the analysis of expression of up to 800 mRNAs, miRNAs, DNA regions, or proteins simultaneously, using predesigned assays, as well as custom solutions.
