Penzberg, Germany and Madison, WI, USA — Roche today announced the global launch of its SeqCap EZ Pure Capture Bead Kit supporting target enrichment workflows prior to DNA sequencing. The newly introduced SeqCap EZ Pure Capture Bead Kit is designed to provide sensitive and robust methods for capture and purification of DNA sample libraries enabling high-quality targeted sequencing results. With the addition of the new kit to its capture portfolio, Roche now offers SeqCap EZ Library probe pools and all target enrichment reagents in a one stop shop.

"This launch is another step in our continued and committed efforts to improve customer convenience and enhance the efficiency of genomics research based on our industry-leading target enrichment technology for next-generation sequencing," said Thomas Schinecker, President Roche Sequencing Solutions.

Roche provides a comprehensive set of reagents and probe pools for superior target enrichment performance. The probe pools include exome libraries, gene panels and custom designs. Roche also launched a suite of SeqCap EZ reagent kits in January this year for applications in single or multiplex target enrichment experiments. With the recent addition, the comprehensive set of capture reagents will allow a more streamlined target enrichment workflow and ensure superior sequence capture efficiency.
