REVEAL GREATER COVERAGE DEPTH IN WHOLE EXOME SEQUENCING Achieve greater coverage depth from less sequencing through the enhanced coverage of the new SeqCap EZ MedExome Target Enrichment Kit for whole exome sequencing. Rely on a design developed to enrich the entire exome (Figure 1 on reverse), but particularly optimized for analyzing regions of medical relevance (Figure 2) 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 confi dence Detect SNPs with 98% sensitivity and >99% specifi city for SNP allele classifi cation. • Gain greater effi ciency at minimal cost Reduce sequencing cost through uniform coverage (Figures 1 and 3) and fully supported multiplexing protocols.
