Introducing First Fully-Kitted Solution for SARS-CoV-2 Surveillance and Microbial Whole Genome Assembly with HiFi Sequencing

  These developments advance the ability of laboratories to identify and track infectious disease threats SARS-CoV-2 mutates rapidly but a new solution is now available for public health laboratories in the race against pathogen evolution—the HiFiViral SARS-CoV-2 Kit. Unlike amplicon-based assays that require periodic updates and subsequent revalidation to ensure all known SARS-CoV-2 variants are detectable, the new HiFiViral SARS-CoV-2 Kit gives researchers a more complete view of all mutations, ensuring that emerging variants can be captured for further study. This fully kitted solution brings trusted, accurate HiFi sequencing to SARS-CoV-2 variant detection. Compared with short read sequencing, HiFi sequencing…
