QIAGEN and Element Biosciences partner to offer complete next-generation sequencing workflows for the AVITI System

Nov. 2, 2023
Partnership combines QIAGEN’s QIAseq panels, CLC LightSpeed, and QCI Interpret software to support Element’s AVITI System users in genomic analysis.

QIAGEN and Element Biosciences, Inc. announced a strategic partnership to offer comprehensive next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows for the Element AVITI System.

Element’s AVITI System is a versatile benchtop sequencer offering a combination of performance, cost, and flexibility for a wide range of NGS applications. For customers using the AVITI System, QIAGEN provides Sample to Insight NGS workflows with validated QIAseq panels and integrated bioinformatic solutions, including CLC LightSpeed and QCI Interpret software.

QIAGEN’s platform-agnostic QIAseq panels enable NGS library preparation. The QIAseq miRNA Library Kit, the QIAseq xHYB Actionable Exome Panel, and the QIAseq Targeted DNA Pro Panel have been validated on the AVITI sequencer.

LightSpeed, a new module for QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench Premium, enables AVITI System users to perform cost-effective whole genome sequencing (WGS) secondary analysis. Interpret facilitates NGS variant interpretation and reporting for oncology and hereditary applications, with over 3 million reports issued.
