Targeting known variants for cancer related genes

Fixed and custom panels for cost-effective sequencing and easier data analysis

Illumina offers a broad portfolio of cancer panels and cancer-focused products across multiple application areas. These products have been optimized with clinical cancer research in mind.

Achieve sequence-ready libraries from as little as 1 ng of high-quality input or 10 ng formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) sample using efficient, optimized assays and integrated sequencing and bioinformatics. Our comprehensive offering includes both fixed panels and custom options.


AmpliSeq for Illumina and our TruSight cancer panels offer several library preparation, sequencing, and data analysis options for cancer research. Streamlined library prep workflows and flexible kit configurations accommodate multiple study designs. Illumina systems deliver industry-leading sequencing—in fact, more than 90% of the world’s sequencing data are generated using Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry.*
