Twist Bioscience Next Generation Sequencing Fixed Panels
Detect Multiple Viral Pathogens From a Single Sample
Symptoms between patients can vary drastically when it comes to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Additionally, SARS-CoV-2 symptoms overlap with those from other respiratory diseases. This makes it hard to determine if symptoms are strictly SARS-CoV-2-related, the result of a different respiratory illness (or illnesses), or a combination of these possibilities. The Twist Respiratory Virus Research Panel makes detecting a huge range of pathogens possible, allowing researchers to not only accurately pinpoint the cause of a patient’s symptoms, but to also investigate which pathogens are most likely to co-infect with SARS-CoV-2.
- Designed to target multiple viruses in a single capture
- Targeted against the reference sequences for 29 common human respiratory viruses
- Separate COVID-19 symptoms from those of other respiratory illnesses
- Detect and characterize several viruses per reaction
- Gather data from nasopharyngeal samples
- Detect loads as low as 100 viral copies
Detect Common Human Respiratory Pathogens with a Single Test
Compiled from the GenBank database, the 41,047 probes in this panel will allow researchers to separate COVID-19 symptoms from those of other respiratory illnesses, both influenza- and non-influenza-related. The Twist Respiratory Panel enables enrichment of these viral sequences for high-resolution NGS. This leads to high-sensitivity detection of as little as 100 copies of viral material with more than 5000x enrichment even from challenging samples, and coverage of > 99.9% of the genome at 1X or greater post-enrichment.
Detection of viral standards from different viral families
Each Twist Synthetic Viral Control was spiked into 50 ng of human carrier RNA at 1,000,000 copies prior to cDNA synthesis. For each standard, we show percent of on-target viral reads, fold enrichment above input, median coverage across the genome, the percent of bases with at least 30x coverage, and the template length. Viral genomes are ordered by template length (smallest to longest) among all genome segments. In most cases, we found that over 70 percent of reads came from viral genomes in these libraries, representing at least a 2500-fold enrichment over the spiked-in content.
Multiplex for Higher Throughput and Lower Cost
A comparison of the percent on-target viral reads captured using the Twist Synthetic Viral Controls at different viral titers, using a multiplex and single-plex hybridization reaction. The first graph shows comparisons using a multiplex and single-plex hybridization reaction using 1,000,000 copies per library, while the second graph shows a similar comparison using 100, 10,000, and 1,000,000 copies per library. Each viral control was captured using the Twist Standard Target Enrichment workflow and the Twist Respiratory Virus Research Panel. This data demonstrates that 8-plex capture gives comparable efficient enrichment as a single plex capture when using the Twist Respiratory Virus Research Panel.
