HTG Transcriptome Panel

The HTG Transcriptome Panel (HTP) is expertly designed to provide extensive coverage of most human mRNA transcripts including isoforms. The panel can simultaneously interrogate 19,398 targets using neoplastic and normal Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE),  extracted RNA from FFPE, FF tisue samples and cells, blood samples collected in PAXgene RNA tubes, or untreated cell lines and cell pellets  generating data for up to 96 samples in less than three days. HTP utilizes our proprietary workflow and leverages the sensitivity and dynamic range of next-generation sequencing (NGS), allowing researchers to generate reliable results using limited sample amount.

Precision of HTP Transcriptome Panel

The Precision of HTP was evaluated using samples across multiple plates, operators, processors and lots. Lin's concordance correlation values were high across all conditions demonstrating high precision.

Performance of Archival Samples

Multi-tissue FFPE samples were lysed and processed with the HTG Transcriptome Panel from blocks less than 5 years old (top row) and blocks greater than 10 years old (bottom row). HTP demonstrates excellent repeatability and offers advantages to RNA-Seq when analyzing archival samples.

Integration with HTG EdgeSeq Reveal software

HTG EdgeSeq Reveal software is a powerful, simple-to-use platform for interrogating and visualizing HTG data. The HTG Transcriptome Panel is fully compatible with the HTG EdgeSeq Reveal platform and allows users to gain insights into complex biology by applying QC metrics and using data analysis that enable researchers to gain actionable insights quickly and reliably. Specifically with HTP, there is a user adjustable gene filtering function which allows researchers to exclude genes with low or no expression from further analysis. HTG EdgeSeq Reveal contains an array of valuable biostatistical tools, such as volcano plots, heatmaps and differential gene expression analysis, that can be used to quickly generate meaningful data and reports without a complicated analysis pipeline.
