A 3.51 Mb region on Chromosome 18 was targeted to compare probe coverage across design platforms. Roche NimbleDesign probes covered 79.3% of the target region (2.79 Mb of target) compared to 50.2% coverage (1.77 Mb of target) by Supplier A's design software. Note: Probe design used standard design parameters for both NimbleDesign and Supplier A's software. Coordinate files from each design were uploaded to SignalMap software to obtain coverage file illustrated above. About 1.05 Mb of coverage space was unique to the NimbleDesign platform and not covered by Supplier A's software. Start your customized SeqCap EZ Choice Design today!
