ThunderBolts Cancer Panel testing


The ThunderBolts™ Cancer Panel from Raindance is a comprehensive next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel for profiling important cancer mutations. The ThunderBolts Cancer Panel enables researchers to rapidly detect and cost-effectively analyze mutations on precious FFPE (Formalin-Fixed Paraffin- Embedded), and Fluid Biopsy™ samples (circulating tumor DNA or ctDNA). The ThunderBolts Cancer Panel uses single molecule PCR to target 50 known cancer genes including tumor suppressors, mutation hotspots and drug resistance markers.

The ThunderBolts Cancer Panel covers 50 well known cancer genes responsible for somatic mutations, including the content found on the Ion Torrent AmpliSeq™ Cancer Hotspot Panel v2 and Illumina TruSeq® Amplicon Cancer Panel products. Mutations in these genes have often been associated with many types of cancers.

The Genomics Core Facility in collboration wirh Dr. Heidi M. Namløs has sucessfully tested the use of ThunderBolts for targeted reseqeuncing in FFPE cancer samples.

The HiSeq 4000 build upon the existing HiSeq 2500 platform using the new HiSeq X patterned flow cell technology, providing unparalleled speed and performance. The dual-flow cell HiSeq 4000 System delivers the highest throughput and lowest price per sample across multiple applications. The new sequencer will provide users will faster turnaround time (run time is 3 days compared to 6-11 days in HiSeq 2500) and higher quality, more data per run and longer reads (150 bp paired-end).
