Cell3™ Target: Carrier Screening Panel
Carrier Screening for paediatric recessive disorders
Accurately analyse carrier status of 448 inherited childhood disorders using a single workflow.
Designed to enrich for genes with high clinical significance in a broad range of rare, highly penetrant recessive childhood disorders
Consolidate multiple technology workflows into one simple NGS assay. No arrays. No MLPA.
Save time and resources
One workflow saves you time and sample, without compromising on quality or robustness.
Optimised so that as little 2.7Gb of data per sample is required to achieve accurate carrier status.
Expanded carrier screening
Traditionally, molecular research laboratories have based their analysis of carrier status on just a few genetic changes based on family history and/or ethnicity. However, with the advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) and identification of more causative variants—both sequence and structural— it is becoming not just possible but important to expand carrier screening to include more variants and diseases.
That’s why Nonacus have developed Cell3™ Target library preparation solutions for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Combining the analysis of SNV’s, indels and CNV’s into a single assay, they enable you to save time and resources and still deliver a comprehensive report on a broad range of penetrant recessive childhood disorders, all from one workflow.

Comprehensive coverage of clinically relevant genes
We know that coverage of the most clinically relevant genes is important to you. The 448 disorders represented on the Nonacus Cell3™ Target: Carrier Screening panel all meet the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) guidelines and have been selected based on their high penetrance and clinical significance1.
For each gene selected, all coding exons and splice site junctions and intronic, regulatory and untranslated regions known to contain disease mutations have been targeted.
Indepth carrier status report from one test
For expanded carrier screening to be effective we know you need to be able to assess a range of genetic variants including copy number deletions or duplications. We also know that this can mean running a host of workflows from PCR and multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) to sequencing and microarrays. This not only increases the time it can take you to reach a final report but can have a significant impact on your cost per test.
The Cell3™ Target: Carrier Screening panel streamlines this allowing you to carry out targeted sequencing and copy number analysis and deliver a comprehensive carrier status report from a single test.

Maximise sequencing efficiency
By increasing the yield per sample, Nonacus Cell3™ Target library prep solutions allow you to run more samples per flow cell increasing your efficiency and reducing your cost per sample.
Cell3 Target panels are available with one of two versions of our library preparation kits:
-Fragmentation: for use with gDNA (FF or FFPE)
