REVEAL GREATER COVERAGE DEPTH IN WES Achieve greater coverage depth from less sequencing through the enhanced coverage of the new SeqCap EZ MedExome Target Enrichment Kit for whole exome sequencing (WES). Rely on a design developed to enrich the entire exome, but particularly optimized for analyzing genes of medical relevance (Figure 1) in research studies. • Focus on genomic regions that really matter For disease-associated genes, 98% of bases are covered at ≥20X depth. • Call variants with confidence Detect SNPs with 98% sensitivity and >99% specificity for SNP allele classification. • Gain greater efficiency at minimal cost Reduce sequencing cost through uniform coverage and fully supported multiplexing protocols.

With SeqCap EZ MedExome, 53% of medically relevant genes are covered at 100% (≥20X coverage) vs. 6% by Supplier A's Clinical Research Exome. Percentage of bases covered at ≥20X for each consolidated target was determined using GATK (DepthOfCoverage), summarized by gene. Supplier A kit's data was generated by a third-party sequencing service provider, following Supplier A's protocol. All reads were subsampled to 60 million for assessment, then subjected to the same bioinformatics pipeline for analysis. Roche data on file.
