Amplicon SARS-CoV-2 NGS assay

The Swift Amplicon SARS-CoV-2 Panel from Swift Biosciences enables library construction from 1st strand and 2nd strand cDNA using tiled primer pairs, targeting the entire 29.9 kb SARS-CoV2 genome with a single pool of multiplexed pairs. Utlising patented multiplex PCR construction and primers designed against the NCBI Reference Sequence NC_045512.2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 isolate Wuhan-Hu-1, complete genome), this panel offers a robust NGS workflow that provides optimal coverage and NGS data quality on Illumina® sequencing platforms with zero predicted off-target products (determined by in silico analysis) from host genome sequences.
